Dr. Jon Lewis and Ellen Lamont (’11), Department of Geoscience, traveled to Taiwan during January 2010. The purpose of the trip was to conduct fieldwork related to an ongoing project on the tectonics of Taiwan. Ellen also presented a summary of her ongoing senior research into the inverse modeling of the Luliao earthquake swarm to the laboratory of Dr. Ruey-Juin Rau.
While there, they also participated in the Frontiers in Active Tectonics in Taiwan Workshop held at the National Cheng Kung University in Tainan. Jon Lewis's talk was entitled “The Transition from the Hsuehshan Range to the Sanyi-Puli Basin: A Field Report.”
