Vertical stress, Sv, scaled between 90 MPa (purple) and 170 MPa (red). Contours indicate the depth of the fault (meters below the sea surface). Half-transparent colors on the inline PSDM image indicate the P-wave velocity scaled between ~ 3.5 km/s (blue) and 5 km/s (red). There is no vertical exaggeration. The yellow star at the drill site (Site C0002) indicates the current total drilled depth, and the white broken line indicates the planned drill path in 2018
