Abstract

This note provides the overview of the calculation in soil liquefaction probability in Central Taiwan carried out by Lee et al. Although that estimation is by all means original and offers an in-depth evaluation on the liquefaction risk for Central Taiwan, we raised a few questions about its earthquake magnitude function, source-to-site distance function, and the fault distributions in Central Taiwan. We personally think that with those concerns being accounted for, that estimation should be more robust.
