Initial conditions in the reservoir. a The solution of the hydro-thermal (TH) problem refers to a time of roughly 31’000 yr. Instability triggers two convective cells and supercritical resources are found in the deeper area and are delimited with a cyan line. b The temperature profile is compared with several geothermal wells in the world close to or at supercritical conditions, such as Reykjanes (RE)59, Los Humeros (LH)58, Larderello (LA)61, Mofete (MO)60, The Geysers (TG)17 and IDDP-2 at Reykjanes9
