From: High-density surveys conducted to reveal active deformations of the upper forearc slope along the Ryukyu Trench, western Pacific, Japan

Fig. 3

Stacked seismic profile of the upper forearc slope off northern Okinawa-jima (see Fig. 2 for the track location). Typical profiles are shown across the upper forearc slope in the central Ryukyu island arc. The basement is tilted to the southeast. Seismic unit A is characterized by continuous internal reflections tilted to the southeast that covers the acoustic basement. Seismic units B and C are characterized by stratified internal reflectors that unconformably overlie the acoustic basement and seismic unit A
