[MIS32-P10] Preliminary results of anelastic strain recovery (ASR) measurements during IODP Expedition 337
Keywords:Stress, ASR, IODP, Exp 337
We collected seven whole round core samples from a depth range between 1,370 - 2,448 mbsf, and successfully obtained high-quality anelastic strain recovery data from six core samples. The successful ASR measurement of the core sample from 2,448 mbsf was the deepest application of ASR in ocean drilling programs. From the strain data, three-dimensional stress orientations were preliminarily determined. The shallower five core samples' strain data showed normal faulting stress regimes, whereas the deepest core sample from 2,448 mbsf reveals a nearly reverse faulting stress regime. In addition, the maximum horizontal stress orientations of all the six core samples were dominantly in west-east direction, and distributed between west-northwest and south-southwest.
We gratefully acknowledge the IODP for providing core samples used in this study and the supports of the IODP Expedition 337 scientists, D/V Chikyu drilling crew, and laboratory technicians.
