A dataset of 5,499 seismograms recorded at 71 short-period stations (distributed over the island of Taiwan) and generated by 108 earthquake events that occurred over a period of time from 2000 to 2003, with a magnitude ranging from ML = 3.0 to 5.0 and depths from 2.0 km to 31.0 km, were used to estimate attenuation characteristics of the lithosphere of Taiwan. The results of the analyses provide evidence that: 1) The S-wave attenuation

\(Q_{{\beta}}^{-1}\)
(as estimated from the coda normalization method) is in very good agreement with total attenuation
\(^{T}Q_{S}^{-1}\)
(as estimated from multiple lapse time window...
