2019 AOGS Innovation Theatre

Mon-29 Jul 2019 7:30pm to 8pm, Dr. Chung-Han Chan will shows our achievements and services at the Exhibition area of AOGS2019

Introduction :

In the past decade, the Taiwan Earthquake Research Center (TEC) has promoted a series of studies on real-time seismology, earthquake early warning (EEW) and seismic hazard and risk analysis with support from the Minister of Science and Technology (MOST). An automated near real-time moment tensor monitoring system (RMT) has been constructed to monitor the seismic activity by taking advantage of a grid-based moment tensor inversion technique and long-period broadband seismic recordings. The P-Alert, a MEMS accelerometer for on-site earthquake early warning, has been widely deployed island-wide in Taiwan. It can detect first P-wave arrival and provide an alert with predicted intensity when the amplitude of vertical P-wave is over a threshold. This EEW system is not only providing the on-site EEW but also reinforce the earthquake disaster prevention education.

By integrating the earthquake science, earthquake engineering, and social science communities of Taiwan, the Taiwan Earthquake Model (TEM) program improves our understanding of Taiwan earthquake mechanisms and therefore provide new insight into seismic hazard and risk assessments for Taiwan. We continued the effort to publish the state of the art science-based hazard model of Taiwan on the basis of the Probability of Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA) approach. The establishment of Earthquake- Disaster & Risk Evaluation and Management (E-DREaM) Center in National Central University, Taiwan, in 2018, built in the accessible seismic hazard information through developing App, and provided deep in sight to industrial partners for seismic hazard and risk management.

The TEC not only acts as a platform for the advanced researches in earthquake science and technology, but also presenting real-time earthquake information and creative and diversity tools and materials for seismic education outreach. Through the inter-collaborated work among, TEC, TEM and E-DREaM, we built the bridges from science to community and to industrial partners for earthquake prone region of Taiwan.
