Temperature profiles for different depth levels. a For the magmatic–metamorphic scenario and b for the sedimentary scenario considering the respective thermal effect (i) of a maximum pressure (p) correction [λ(maxp)] of the ambient thermal conductivity; (ii) of a maximum temperature (T) correction [λ(maxT)] of the ambient thermal conductivity, and (iii) of no correction of the ambient thermal conductivity on the respective thermal field. For data input see Table 2
