—We use preseismic, coseismic, and postseismic GPS data of the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake to infer spatio-temporal variation of fault slip and frictional behavior on the Chelungpu fault. The geodetic data shows that coseismic slip during the Chi-Chi earthquake occurred within a patch that was locked in the period preceding the earthquake, and that afterslip(More)
[1] Postseismic displacements of as much as 14 cm were recorded by GPS measurements in the 3 months following the M W 7.6 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake. Data from 35 continuous and 90 campaign-surveyed stations, which show continued east over west thrusting, are analyzed to estimate the postseismic slip distribution and fault geometry. Assuming the(More)
We use GPS displacements collected in the 15 months after the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake (M w 7.6) to evaluate whether post-seismic deformation is better explained by afterslip or viscoelastic relaxation of the lower crust and upper mantle. We find that all viscoelas-tic models tested fail to fit the general features in the post-seismic GPS(More)
Oxygen mass transfer in clumps of Atropa belladonna hairy roots was investigated as a function of root density and external flow conditions. Convection was the dominant mechanism for mass transfer into root clumps 3.5 to 5.0 cm in diameter; Peclet numbers inside the clumps ranged from 1.4 x 10(3) to 7.1 x 10(4) for external superficial flow velocities(More)
