Table 1 Contraction amount of the PHS slab along each segment. The line numbers, 3, 4, 5, and 6 correspond to the blue, green, red, and purples lines, respectively, for the CAMP model (a) and the Hirose model (b). The unit of the contraction amount is kilometer. The contraction amount obtained for line 6 of the Hirose model is unreliable

From: Estimate of the contraction rate of central Japan through the deformation of the Philippine Sea slab
