Fig. 7

Pore fluid pressure ratio in a mass transport deposit estimated by using Mohr circles for stresses (a) A, (b) F, (c) E, and (d) C. σ1, σ2, and σ3 are the maximum, intermediate, and minimum compressive principal stresses, respectively. Gray lines show the fault strength when λ = 0.00, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, and 1.00. Stars indicate vertical stress axes. Number indicates the faults reported by Naruse and Otsubo (2011a). Numbers in outlined black-filled circles in Mohr circles indicate those faults for which stresses A, C, D, and F can explain the slip vectors. The circles from the black dotted line to the left region are contained within 95% confidence limits of the fault data for every stress
