Vector plot of heat flow for the model with 5 × 1 × 5 blocks (each block has 500 m in the x-direction, 100 m in the y-direction, and 500 m in the z-direction) model with bounding layers and 45° dip. The snapshot is taken after 1000 years and demonstrates heat flow out of the reservoir on the top and into on the bottom. Length and color of the vectors reflect the magnitude of heat transfer. The range increases from short vectors with cold colors to long ones with warm colors. For this snapshot, the range is from 0.06 to 1.68 W per m2
