Orientation of the maximum horizontal compressive stress in metropolitan France and Western Europe. Small solid bars show orientations of in-situ maximum horizontal compressive stress (σH) from the World Stress Map (Heidbach et al., 2018). Thick dashed white lines show smoothed σH orientation. Green, blue and red bars show σH orientation from focal mechanism inversions in strike-slip, extensional and shortening stress regimes. (b) Schema of state of stress with permutations between σ1 and σ2 allowing for oscillations between strike-slip and extensional regimes while maintaining σH orientation.
