摘要

To understand the stress regime in the shallow portion of the Nankai Trough seismogenic zone, we carefully investigated the resistivity image logs at IODP Site C0009 that penetrated to 1600 meters below the sea floor (mbsf) in the central Kumano forearc basin. During the riser drilling, several downhole measurements were run including image logs, caliper and comprehensive geophysical logs sets. Borehole resistivity images obtained by a wireline-logging tool were reprocessed in order to eliminate image artifacts generated by sticky tool movements, etc. The constraints on the possible magnitude and orientation of horizontal principal stresses are provided from the borehole images, rock strength, and logging data. The absence of borehole breakouts above 1285 mbsf represents a small difference (<10 MPa) between horizontal principal stresses and reflects the normal faulting and strike-slip faulting stress regimes. A stable, continuous breakout was observed in the resistivity image logs suggest that the stress state is in a strike-slip faulting and tending to reverse faulting regime below 1285 mbsf. The differential horizontal stress (up to 15 MPa) is significantly larger than in the shallow portion of the borehole (SHAMX > Sv > Shmin). Citation: Wu, H.-Y., M. Kinoshita, and Y.
