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

Fig. 9

Stacked seismic profile of the upper forearc slope southeast of Okinawa-jima (see Fig. 2 for the track location). Normal faults that are oriented perpendicular to the Ryukyu island arc and the Ryukyu Trench axis are shown. Seismic units B and C covering the acoustic basement have a thickness of 1.8 s (TWT). Broken lines represent minor normal faults which are untraceable
