|TAIGER (TAiwan Integrated GEodynamics Research) project for testing models of Taiwan orogeny.|
The current project is a collaborative project on the US side among nine investigators from six institutes, as well as one from a Canadian university; it is supported by the Continental Dynamics Program of the US National Science Foundation.We are in cooperation with Taiwan scientists from five national universities and Academia Sinica, supported by the National Science Council of Taiwan.
