Overview of the study area. A: The inlay gives an overview of the tectonic situation in this area, with EP = Eurasian Plate, PH = Philippine Sea Plate, PP = Pacific Plate, NA = North American Plate. B: Overview of the Nankai Trough area (modified from [14]), where the Philippine Sea plate subducts beneath the Eurasian plate with a rate of 4.1 to 6.5 cm/yr. Site C0002 is situated at the southern rim of the Kumano forearc basin, which is located between the Muroto Basin in the south-west and the Enshu trough in the north-east.
