  1. Event times, locations, and magnitudes are taken from the CWB earthquake catalogue. The focal mechanisms are derived from the US Geological Survey CMT solution
  2. aThe focal mechanism is derived from the Broadband Array in Taiwan for Seismology CMT solution
  3. bThe focal mechanism is derived from the Real-time Moment Tensor Monitoring System
