About RMT 2.
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.
