Taiwan Earthquake Research Center Geophysical Instrument Service Program2017

Project Details


In order to serve variable earthquake studies, a seismologic instrument service center has beenset up by Taiwan Earthquake Research Center. The center manages different kinds of earthquakeinstruments to support different high-density, short-term, and long-term observations of earthquakesand imaging details of earth structures. The seismologic instrument service center has been verysuccessful in the past years. Due to different research methods and purposes, Taiwan EarthquakeResearch Center further organizes the “geophysical instrument service center” to manage theinstruments other than seismology’s. The geophysical instruments mainly include: seismicreflection/refraction, gravity and magnetic, geo-electric, geothermal, marine geophysics and welllogging. The geophysical instrument center will provide experts for testing, installation, archive dataand other services. In this year, the major effort will focus on: (1) increase one resistivity imageprofiling (RIP) system to investigate detailed near-surface geologic structures or for real-timelandslide monitoring; (2) increase 2 OBS instruments to prepare for more seismic sea-land studies,especially in Taiwan Strait; (3) increase sonic logging instrument for geothermal studies ; (4)develops and implements training courses for users to promote the operation of geophysicalinstruments; and (5) provides technical support and manpower for major research projects.
