Abstract

GPS observations have revealed important information for studying active tectonics and plate motion and are a useful tool for monitoring crustal deformation. The CWB continuous GPS array consists of approximately 150 stations with dense spatial coverage throughout Taiwan and can be used not only to monitor crustal deformation and seismic activity, but also to analyze the earthquake precursors in Taiwan.
