Strain of all baselines. Strain (monthly medians) estimated from the measured travel times and calculated sound speeds based on pressure, temperature and a linear salinity decrease of 0.002 PSU yr−1. Baselines not crossing the fault (e.g. subparallel to the NAF) are shown in black; for a simple, east-west oriented, right-lateral strike-slip fault, baselines oriented southwest-northeast (red lines) should lengthen and those oriented northwest-southeast (blue lines) should shorten. Predicted strain rates correspond to a strike-slip movement reaching the seafloor
