Correlation between scale rate at the wellhead (mol/(\(\hbox {m}^2\) \(\cdot\) s)), production rate (a), reservoir temperature (b), and frequency of pump changes (c). Data points labeled with site number. Red data points: reliable data. Grey data points: less reliable or particular data (site 9: many different pumps, site 5: scale thickness according to facility operator). The dark blue data points are the observed scale rates at facilities where hydrochemical analyses but no hydrochemical model were available
