Extended Data Figure 2: Distribution of temperature after 100 kyr of magma injection in magma bodies emplaced with different modalities.

From: Zircons reveal magma fluxes in the Earth’s crust

Extended Data Figure 2

For all panels the rate of magma injection is 10−2 km3 yr−1, the final volume of injected magma is 500 km3 and the initial wall rock temperature at 10 km is 300 °C. a, Magma is injected at the core. b, Magma is injected in vertically elongated pulses and the magma body grows by lateral displacement of the surrounding crust. c, Sill-like magma batches are stacked vertically and the intrusion grows by displacement of the surrounding crust along the vertical direction.
