Temperature field distribution. Temperatures are reported as a function of the depth in km (vertical axis on the right side of the diagram) or as the number of control volumes (cvn; vertical axis at the left side of the diagram). The conditions of this model (M55; Table 2) are as follows: the top of the magma chamber at 5 km depth, chamber volume of 600 km3, and emplacement time of the 100,000 years (δt of 500 years).
