Fig. 2

Tangent-lineation plots of core-scale faults shown in lower hemisphere, equal-area projections for each fault type. The center of each arrow indicates the pole to a fault plane, and the black arrow represents the slip direction of the footwall relative to the hanging wall; thus, arrows directed inward toward the center indicate reverse faulting and arrows directed outward toward the primitive circle indicate normal faulting. The directions of the principal stresses are shown by triangles (σ1), diamonds (σ2) and stars (σ3). Gray arrows are model tangent lineations for model faults of the best-fitting inverted stress tensor
