Crustal thickness results. a RMS misfit between crustal thicknesses by our analysis and by Ohira et al. (2017) for an area of normal oceanic crust (location in Fig. 1a). The dashed line represents the crustal thickness at the RMS minimum. b Crustal thickness along the survey line of Ohira et al. (2017) as determined by Ohira et al. (2017) (dashed line) and by our calculations using a constant reference crustal thickness of 8.5 km (solid line). c Map of crustal thickness around the survey line of Ohira et al. (2017) calculated for a reference crustal thickness of 8.5 km; contour interval 1 km. The thick white-edged line is the survey line of Ohira et al. (2017); the red portion was used for fitting crustal thickness (see the text). d Map of crustal thickness in the ORS study area for a reference crustal thickness of 8.5 km; contour interval 1 km
