Researches carried out by this group lie in two strands. One strand is to understand the stratigraphic and structural architectures of basins and their evolutionary development in the Taiwan arc-continent collision zone. The other strand lies in the applied aspect of two categories: (1) to understand the gas-hydrate resource potential offshore SW Taiwan, and (2) to assess the potential sites for geo-sequestration of carbon dioxide. These research directions can be comprehended by the current projects carried out by this group, which are listed below.

We also participated in the Taiwan Chelungpu-fault Drilling Project during 2003-2006. You can find the project detail here.

The topics of research carried out by this group can also be categorized by three tectonic zones in Taiwan.

Incipient arc-continent collision zone

Full arc-continent collision zone

Regions of post-collisional collapse
