Investigation of Strong Aftershock Sequences
Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica
The 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake (Mw=7.6) triggered a huge number of
strong aftershocks in the Taiwan area. Those earthquakes provide an ideal opportunity
to statistically examine possible mechanisms of both earthquake triggering and fault
The 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake (Mw = 7.6), one of the best
instrumentally recorded earthquakes in the world (Teng et al., 2001), has provided
another reliable seismic data set with which to examine possible mechanisms of
earthquake triggering and fault interaction.

earthquake (a thick circle) and the general geology of the island of Taiwan. Most
earthquakes are grouped into two seismic zones (i.e., the Chi-Chi and the Central
Range seismic zones) marked by dashed-boxes. The regional seismic network
(CWBSN) was marked by triangles.
