Fig. S4 Example argon isotope inverse isochron plots for Chari/Tuff L samples. Data arrays for each sample occupy wedge-shaped areas and are plotted relative to a mixing line between the atmospheric argon composition and estimated eruption ages. Most data-points plot below, or within uncertainty of, the mixing line. In most cases Ca/K ratios (displayed as shaded spheres) correlate with distance from the mixing line.
