From: The origin of deep geothermal anomalies in the German Molasse Basin: results from 3D numerical models of coupled fluid flow and heat transport

Fig. 4

3D numerical model used for the coupled simulations of fluid flow and heat transport. The different horizontal mesh resolutions were chosen according to the facies distribution of the Malm aquifer (StMWIT 2010). The colour-coding shows the prescribed hydraulic conductivity: purple colours show the hydraulic low-conductive crystalline crust. The yellow colours show the Molasse Sediments. Red and green colours show the Mesozoic sedimentary layers. The implemented testfaults can be seen as areas with higher vertical resolution at the top
