A Study of the Tectonic Structures of the Taiwan Area with the Onland and Ocean Bottom Magnetotelluric Methods( III )

Project Details


We propose to use the on-land and ocean bottom magnetotelluric method, in order to resolve the geological structures within 5-15 kilometers in the four-year project. In the study of this year, we plan to collect the magnetotelluric measurements in the Pingtung plain and the Lanyang plain. We will attempt to deploy the muti-station, synchronized MT surveys in the area for solving the problems from regional electromagnetic noises. In addition to the on-land surveys, we would also attempt to assemble an ocean bottom magnetotelluric system and conduct the tests. We hope to deploy the system in the shallow water that are within 200m in depth. Lastly, we hope to develop a resistivity model for the Taiwan region with not only the information of geometry, but also the information of physical properties and geology.
