Perhaps this is a simple question, but I am struggling to understand the 
  units for the parameter viscE. This is the activation energy (?), 
which for olivine is 540 kJ/mol. This is the input value I have used for 
my old 2D version of Citcom (divided by the gas constant).

The input for viscE in the new Citcom (plume-input, in the inflow 
version) is 6.9077553. Where does this number come from?

Kind Regards
