  1. Lithological control on the deformation mechanism and the mode of fault slip on the Longitudinal Valley Fault, Taiwan

    Thomas, Marion Y.; Avouac, Jean-Philippe; Gratier, Jean-Pierre; Lee, Jian-Cheng
    The Longitudinal Valley Fault (LVF) in Taiwan is creeping at shallow depth along its southern half, where it is bounded by the Lichi Mélange. By contrast, the northern segment of the LVF is locked where it is bounded by forearc sedimentary and volcanoclastic formations. Structural and petrographic investigations show that the Lichi Mélange most probably formed as a result of internal deformation of the forearc when the continental shelf of South China collided with the Luzon arc as a result of the subduction of the South China Sea beneath the Philippine Sea Plate. The forearc formations constitute the protolith of...
