CRUSTAL HEAT FLOW: A GUIDE TO MEASUREMENT AND MODELLING is a handbook for geologists and geophysicists who manipulate thermal data, particularly for petroleum exploration. Heat flow data can provide an indication of past geological events and present economic potential of fossil fuel deposits. In theory and with practical examples the first two parts of the book discuss the sources of heat within the crust, describe how to maximise the accuracy of temperature data, cover the measurement of the thermal properties of rocks, and explain a number of maturity indicators. The last part of the book covers a range of thermodynamic models of the lithosphere and goes on to show how these can be used to reconstruct the thermal history of individual sedimentary basins. The focus remains consistently on practical applications, with worked examples providing a comprehensive guide for data reduction and interpretation. This text will be attractive to a broad range of earth scientists. Many geologists will be interested in applications for global modelling and structural geology, but the topics covered will also be of specific interest to the oil exploration industry. This book will be regarded as a long-term reference source for professionals and researchers. It will also form the basis of advanced undergraduate and graduate student courses in geology, geophysics, engineering, mining, and environmental science, and will be a valuable text for petroleum industry training schemes.
