Extended Data Figure 6: Predicted global-scale stress and tectonic patterns due to the Tharsis-driven TPW event.

From: Late Tharsis formation and implications for early Mars

Extended Data Figure 6

Solid circles indicate the locations of the palaeo poles. In the stress pattern (a), crosses indicate directions and relative magnitudes of principal stresses, and orange and blue lines correspond to extensional and compressive stresses, respectively. In the tectonic pattern (b), the orange, blue, and light grey lines indicate the strike of the expected normal, thrust and strike–slip faults, respectively. Contours correspond to the deviator stress in units of MPa. Solid black lines mark the boundaries between different tectonic regions.
