Fig. S1 Worked Bayesian estimation example, generated using the Julia version of BayeZirChron and the interactive Jupyter notebook of Keller et al. (2018) (https://github.com/brenhinkeller/BayeZirChron.c). Single feldspar 40>Ar*#x002F;39Ar data for KBS sample F102-P1 modelled using an exponential distribution, yielding a Bayesian40>Ar*#x002F;39Ar estimate of 0.9505 ± 0.005, which equates to an age of 1880.1 ± 1.2 Ma (including the uncertainty in the J-value) (see Table 1; Table S5).
