Table 2 Contraction rate and strain rate of the PHS slab beneath central Japan. The zone numbers represent the area bounded by the colored lines (e.g., the zone 4–5 is the area bounded by the green and red lines). The numbers in parentheses represent the cases with a tear beneath the Kii strait. (a) CAMP model, (b) Hirose model

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

  Zone Contraction rate (mm/year) Strain rate (× 10−8/year)
(a) 3–4 2.8 (1.6) 0.8 (0.5)
4–5 10.1 (4.9) 2.9 (1.7)
5–6 19.7 (13.4) 5.6 (4.6)
(b) 3–4 5.6 (2.4) 1.6 (0.8)
4–5 10.6 (6.0) 3.0 (2.1)
