From the numerical modelling, the lithosphere of the Central System is weaker because of its lower mantle strength (as a result of the crust thickening) and its higher geotherm (due to the high heat production of granites).
As should be standard on all thermal grouting projects, samples were sent to Geotherm Inc.

There is some controversy on this point since the Archean geotherm was hotter.
