  • Sedimentological characteristics and seafloor failure offshore SW Taiwan
    • Spatial distribution and characteristics of sediments off SW Taiwan
    • Re-evaluated the sediment budget and impact of event-driven sedimentation process
    • Identified the feature of mass slope failure on the Upper Gaoping Slope
    • Author(s): Chih-Chieh Su, Sheng-Ting Hsu, Huai-Houh Hsu, Jing-Yi Lin, and Jia-Jyun Dong
    • DOI: 10.3319/TAO.2017.06.21.01
    • Keywords: Sedimentation rate, Sediment budget, Submarine canyon, Seafloor failure, Pb-210
  • Fangliao Slide — a large slope failure in the upper Kaoping Slope off southwest Taiwan

    A large submarine landslide, Fangliao Slide, is discovered and described

    The Fangliao Slide is linked to mud diapirism and gas hydrate dissociation

    The boundaries of the Fanglaio Slide can be delineated from seismic profiles

  • Absolute gravity change in Taiwan: Present result of geodynamic process investigation
    • Absolute gravity change in Taiwan are used to investigate four geodynamic processes
    • Declining gravity values at Tatun, Lanyu and Ludao volcanoes imply retreating magma
    • Decreasing gravity valuesin central and eastern Taiwan indicate Moho deepening
