Title: Three Dimensional Thermal Model of Newberry Volcano, Oregon

Final results of a 3D finite difference thermal model of Newberry Volcano, Oregon. Model data are formatted as a text file with four data columns (X, Y, Z, T). X and Y coordinates are in UTM (NAD83 Zone 10N), Z is elevation from mean sea level (meters), T is temperature in °C. Model is 40km X 40km X 12.5 km, grid node spacing is 100m in X, Y, and Z directions. A symmetric cylinder shaped magmatic heat source centered on the present day caldera is the modeled heat source. The center of the modeled body is a -1700 m (elevation) and is 600m thick with a radius of 8700m. This is the best fit results from 2D modeling of the west flank of the volcano. The model accounts for temperature dependent thermal properties and latent heat of crystallization. For additional details, assumptions made, data used, and a discussion of the validity of the model see Frone, 2015 (
