Hypothetical fault rupture scenarios showing uplift (red) and subsidence (blue) along west Luzon Island. Contours and numbers indicate amount of deformation in meters. a Fault rupture along the Manila Trench megathrust could lead to uplift of coastlines closer to the subduction zone (i.e., Pangasinan) but will largely cause subsidence along the west coasts of the Ilocos region. b Rupture of an offshore upper-plate reverse fault on the northern forearc region is modeled to approximate the deformation pattern of the lowest Holocene terraces in west Luzon
