Fig. 4

Contours of shear stress (\(\tau _{s}\)) in the lower crust as a function of depth and distance from the fault for models a W1E, b D1E, c W30E, d W1C, e D1C, and f W30C. The thickness of the lower crust and the depth of the BDT are dependent on the assumed rheology and far-field velocity (\(v_{0}\)). The gray broken lines represent the BDT depth
