Changes in stress and volumetric strain (dilatation) at the hypocenter of the Oita earthquake. a Changes in the Coulomb failure stress (ΔCFF), shear stress (Δτ), and normal stress (Δσ n ) are shown in black, red, and blue lines, respectively. The shaded region indicates variability of ΔCFF due to changes in the mechanism of the Oita earthquake (see text for full procedural description). The gray bar indicates the origin time of the Oita earthquake. b Volumetric strain changes at the hypocenter. Positive values indicate expansion
