a Effective normal stress image draped over the plate boundary fault. The image is scaled between 25 and 60 MPa. b Shear stress image scaled between 0 and 20 MPa. c Slip tendency image for λ* = 0.25 (λ = 0.7), scaled between 0 and 0.25. d Slip tendency image for λ* = 0.85 (λ = 0.94), scaled between 0 and 0.8. Note the difference in scale used for (c) and (d). The yellow stars on the drill site (Site C0002) in (a) and (b) indicate the current total drilled depths, and the white broken lines indicate the planned drill path in 2018
