Table 2 Stress axis orientation and stress ratio estimated from core-scale fault inversion and directions of SHmax

From: Paleo-stress orientations and magnitudes from triaxial testing and stress inversion analysis in Nankai accretionary prism sediments

  Sigma 1 Sigma 2 Sigma 3 Stress ratio Used direction as S′
Azimuth Plunge Azimuth Plunge Azimuth Plunge
C0001 normal fault 328 83 163 7 73 2 0.1652 328
C0001 thrust fault 303 19 38 13 165 66 0.8579 38
C0002 normal fault 175 82 303 5 33 6 0.667 303
