Figure from Wada and Wang  showing an example for a young slab subduction zone, and including the locations of slab dehydration relative to key mechanical and rheological transition along the subduction interface, including the seismogenic zone and its down-dip edge where ETS has been observed, potential serpentinization of the mantle wedge, and kinematic coupling between the down-going slab and mantle wedge.
