Heat Flows off Southwest Taiwan:Measurements over Mud Diapirs and Estimated from Bottom Simulating Reflectors

Abstract

The area offshore from southwest Taiwan is where the Taiwan mountain belt first incroaches on the Chinese continental margin. The northwestward convergence of the Luzon Arc towards the Chinese continental margin has resulted in stacking of thick sediments in terms of folds and thrusts off southwest Taiwan. Mud diapirs and bottom simulating reflectors (BSRs) are commonly observed in this region.
