Source Parameters of Regional Earthquakes in Taiwan: January-December, 2002

 

Abstract

We report on the source parameters of 194 earthquakes that occurred between January and December 2002, in the Taiwan region. The improved CMT inversion algorithm by Kao et al. (1998) is used to overcome the generally higher background noise and the heterogeneous velocity structure resulting from the complex tectonic interactions near Taiwan. To make the results more accessible and useful to the academic community, both the table that summarizes the reported source parameters and the complete set of inversion results are available electronically from the BATS worldwide web site at http://bats.earth.sinica.edu.tw/CMT_Solutions/cmtF2002.html.
