About Us

In order to understand earthquakes and seismic hazards, the Seismology Group of Institute Earth Sciences (IES) has conducted several basic researches. Meanwhile, seismic observation and monitoring have also been made by this group since it was constructed in about 40 years ago. The studies of this group focus on the following three topics: (1) earthquake source mechanisms; (2) wave propagations; and (3) site effects. The seismic data collected from several seismic networks have been integrated to study the source, path, and site effects in different seismogenic zones of the Taiwan region. Results are applied to reduce seismic risks.
