Tectonics and mantle dynamics in the Taiwan region
What is it about?
The Taiwan mountain belt is bracketed by two subduction zones, as a result, earthquakes occur frequently in the region. This paper show if and how these near-surface tectonic activities are related to the processes in the deep Earth.
Why is it important?
Our study show that deformations at different depths in the Taiwan region are likely caused by distinct mechanisms and there is no vertically coherent deformation from the surface to the sub-lithospheric mantle. This helps to explain the observations and leads to a better understanding of the regional tectonics and dynamics.
