The Chi‐Chi, Taiwan earthquake: Large surface displacements on an inland thrust fault
In the early morning (01:47 local time) of September 21, 1999, the largest earthquake of the century in Taiwan (Mw=7.6, ML=7.3) struck the central island near the small town of Chi-Chi. TheExpand

Evidence for fault lubrication during the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan, earthquake (Mw7.6)
The ground motion data of the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan, earthquake exhibit a striking difference in frequency content between the north and south portions of the rupture zone. In the north, the groundExpand

Heat signature on the Chelungpu fault associated with the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake
[1] We have made observations of a heat signature that is associated with the frictional heat generated at the time of faulting for a large earthquake. Temperature measurements in a borehole thatExpand

Transition from oblique subduction to collision: Earthquakes in the southernmost Ryukyu arc‐Taiwan region
Tectonic characteristics of the region between Taiwan and the southernmost Ryukyu arc are inferred from a detailed analysis of local seismicity and source parameters of 62 recent earthquakes ofExpand

Spatial slip distribution of the September 20, 1999, Chi‐Chi, Taiwan, Earthquake (MW7.6) —Inverted from teleseismic data
The teleseismic waveforms of the MW7.6 September 20, 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake were examined to obtain the quick information on the fault rupture process. The deconvolution results show the faultExpand

Ionospheric GPS total electron content (TEC) disturbances triggered by the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami
[1] Tsunami ionospheric disturbances (TIDs) of the 26 December 2004 Mw 9.3 Sumatra earthquake are detected by the total electron content (TEC) of ground-based receivers of the global positioningExpand

Response of seismicity to Coulomb stress triggers and shadows of the 1999 Mw=7.6 Chi-Chi, Taiwan, earthquake
[1] The correlation between static Coulomb stress increases and aftershocks has thus far provided the strongest evidence that stress changes promote seismicity, a correlation that the Chi-ChiExpand
