Abstract

Secular horizontal strain of the crust in eastern Taiwan is investigated based on retriangulation data. The strain along the Longitudinal Valley, a probable plate boundary of the Philippine Sea and the Eurasian plate, is compressive, with a large rate of 2 to 3 microstrains per year, and the maximum compression axis intersects the valley with an angle of about 60. This suggests that the valley is not a place of pure collision, and that the relative movement of the plates has a left-lateral component there.
