Depth profiles of calculated EST and background torque (Tb) at site C0023. Black dots represent calculated data averaged within 2 m, and orange curves moving averages of each 5 points. EST is displayed at both a linear and log scale because EST varies greatly below 1100 mbsf. Blue broken lines are rough baselines for the EST profile in zone A. The types of coring tools used with the drilling are shown in the left end. The column with A–D between log EST and Tb shows the zones defined from the variation in EST
