Fig. 2

Calculated melt fraction as a function of the formation age of the EER. Bold and dashed lines show melt fractions for the case of X = 0.3 and 1, respectively. The blue bar indicates the maximum formation age of the EER. EER Early Enriched Reservoir (low-Sm/Nd reservoir which can compensate for the 142Nd/144Nd difference between ASE and chondrites)
