Fig. 9

Shear strain rate changed by increased temperature for a W1E and b W30E. The broken contour lines show the shear strain rate with the temperature field of a 1-D geothermal gradient, and the solid contour lines show the shear strain rate with the temperature field from a 3 Myr simulation. Gray broken lines and solid lines represent the BDT depth at t = 0 and at t = 3Myr, respectively
