Real-time Moment Tensor monitoring system (RMT) takes advantage of a grid-based moment tensor inversion technique and long-period broadband seismic recordings (BATS) to automatically monitor earthquake activities in the vicinity of Taiwan. The centroid moment tensor (CMT) inversion technique and a grid search scheme are applied to obtain the information of earthquake source parameters, including the event origin time, hypocentral location, moment magnitude and focal mechanism. All of these source parameters can be determined simultaneously within 117 seconds after the occurrence of an earthquake.
