Frictional heat from faulting of the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake

The frictional heat produced by the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan earthquake was estimated by identifying a temperature anomaly that is present in a borehole drilled through a large slip region of the fault. The temperature rise was estimated by solving an equation representing one-dimensional thermal conduction in an infinite medium. In order to solve this equation, the thermal diffusivity of fracture zone materials were measured using the transient plane source technique. It ...

Thermal properties across the Chelungpu fault zone and evaluations of positive thermal anomaly on the slip zones: Are these residuals of heat from faulting?

In 1999 an earthquake ripped through Taiwan, which came to be known as the Chi-Chi earthquake. The authors of this paper drilled into the core of the fault created by the earthquake to recover samples that could be analyzed. Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the core samples were measured. The thermal properties were measured in order to give information about frictional heat ...
