Abstract Extensive evidence of Ca-rich brine at the western side of Lake Tiberias (LT), Israel, refers to dolomitization processes. Dolomitization of Mg-rich brine saturated limestones preferentially occurs at enhanced temperatures. The presence of wide areas of fissured basalt in that area suggests that magma, which erupted through fissures, sufficiently heated initiating dolomitization. In this study we numerically investigate possible paleo-heating processes related to magmatic intrusions.
