Peter, According to the 1997 UBC Taiwan is a Zone 4. According to Factory Mutual loss prevention data sheet 1-2S (good for looking at relative seismicity), Taiwan is more seismic than any place on the planet (3 year return for M=7.0 or greater). According to "Seismic Design of Buildings in China", Hu Shipping, Earthquake Spectra, Vol 9, No. 4, 1993; the island has areas that are the highest in all of China (mainland included). Do a search at http://www.eerc.berkeley.edu/. You will hit about 50 or 60 records. GE, Bechtel, and Black & Veatch are currently building a nuclear power plant in Lungman, Taiwan. I would think that there are some studies. They also have extremely high winds.

Hi, do we have someone on this list who is familiar with the seismicity of Taiwan. Can someone help me with a seismic coefficient for the city of Taoyuan ? Any recommendations about literature, web-site etc. will be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Peter Rangelow Frankfurt, Germany
