2006/10 test shot


The central portion of the 2006/10 test shot profile with sensors 200m apart for a total distance of 10 km. The source consists of 500 kg of explosives. It was placed at the bottom of a 50m 14กจ drill hole. Along this profile we see Moho under Taiwan clearly for the first time. With a 2-way travel time of 10-11 sec the Moho is at a depth of about 32-35 km.
