The Structural and Geological Evolution of the Yushan Massif in the Yushan National Park - (II) Geological Survey
This project aims to develop an evolution model of the Mt. Jade area in the Yushan National Park regarding the evolution in the geological structures and landforms around the area. The project is a three-year project; this report contains the results obtained from the study in the second year. Based on the data collected from remote sensing and field survey, the following results are obtained. 1. The route geologic maps (scale: 1/10000) of Mt. Jade (including the cross-sectional profiles) along the Mt. Jade main trail are modified. The major modification is the additional route map from the North Peak to Batongguan area. 2. The remote sensing results can reveal bedding trace, structure trace, lineation, geomorphological surface and glacial landform. These results, along with the results from the published literatures and field survey, serve the basis for constructing the geological map in the Mt. Jade area. 3. Base on the investigated results, the project proposes three new introductory boards along the trail. Furthermore, the project produces a short video and a guide book for explaining the rock formations, geologic structures and landforms in the Jade Mountain.
