Compositions of quenched and calculated melts. Blue diamonds show the estimated or calculated melt compositions, and orange squares show the quenched melt compositions. The error bars on the quenched melt compositions are the standard deviation (1σ). Orange horizontal boxes show the range of the standard deviations (1σ) of the quenched melt compositions after the 5th iteration. The quenched melt composition after the 5th iteration and the calculated mean composition after the 6th iteration are almost identical (see text for details)
