Short summary
This geochronological and thermometric study reveals unusually hot fluids in an Alpine-type fissure of granite from the external crystalline massif (Western Alps). The fluid is estimated to be 150-250 °C hotter than the host rock and requires a dynamic fluid pathway at mid-crustal conditions in the ductile regime. This fluid circulation resets the zircon fission track thermochronometer, but only at the fissure contact. Thermal disturbances due to advective heating appear to be localized.
