a History of slip velocities at the center of each megathrust segment. b Afterslip, slow earthquakes and slow-slip events in the accretionary prism. c Full and partial ruptures break the locked seismogenic zone with varying recurrence intervals. d Long-term slow-slip events in the metamorphic belt at down-dip of the seismogenic zone. e Short-term slow-slip events in the mantle lid. f Creeping in the mantle wedge corner interrupted by afterslip following full and partial ruptures. g Overall peak slip velocity on the megathrust, which captures events that do not rupture the segment centers. h The strain rate evolution of the volume element shown as the gray triangle in the mantle wedge in Fig. 3. i The strain rate evolution of the volume element shown as the gray triangle in the oceanic mantle in Fig. 3. The indices of ruptures are consistent among figures
