Average slip rates estimated from similar and repeating earthquakes during the 2001–2019 period, and their differences. a, d Average slip rates estimated from similar earthquakes. b, e Average slip rates estimated from repeating earthquakes. c, f Slip rate differences. ac are for the subducting Pacific Plate, and df are for the subducting Philippine Sea Plate. Dashed lines indicate the downdip limit of interplate coupling (Igarashi et al. 2001). Blue lines indicate plate boundaries. Red line in a and b denotes the outer edge of the large slip zone during the 2011 Tohoku-Oki Earthquake rupture (Kato and Igarashi 2012). Green lines in d and e indicate the asperities of large interplate earthquakes on the subducting Philippine Sea Plate (Baba and Cummins 2005; Sato et al. 2005) and the potential source region of the anticipated Tokai Earthquake (Central Disaster Management Council 2001)
