Fig. 6

Constraints on stress magnitude in the horizontal maximum and minimum principal stress spaces for each type of fault and each site. The two stress polygons correspond to internal frictions of 0.45 and 0.62 (smaller and larger areas, respectively). Thick black lines show linear relationships derived from paleo-stress state. Red segments of the lines represent the constrained stress magnitudes. Pale red circles indicate the closest points on the thick lines to the stress polygons in two of the diagrams (C0002 normal fault and C0002 strike-slip faults)
