In this study, the P arrivals of 1726 ray paths with the epicentral distances longer than 200 km from 539 earthquakes that occurred in Taiwan are used to investigate the variation of Pn velocity. The results show that the lateral variation of Pn velocity in Taiwan is quite similar to the pattern of gravity anomaly and strongly related to several features of Taiwan’s geological structure. The crust is a little thicker (about 39 km) in the Central Range and somewhat thinner toward the east and… CONTINUE READING
