Abstract

We presented the total and inorganic carbon contents of core samples recovered from the Taiwan Chelungpu fault system, which slipped at the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake, and reported lower contents of inorganic carbon within the black gouge zone in FZB1136 (fault zone at depth 1136 m in Hole B) and in the black-material disks in FZB1194 and FZB1243.
