Geothermal measurements in Australia

Sass, John Harvey


Temperatures from exploratory diamond-drilled holes and from two oil wells were combined with laboratory determinations of thermal conductivity to give values of the surface heat flow over a large proportion of the Australian continent. Twenty-five new heat-flow values involving twenty-two different locations are presented. The mean host flow from the Western Australian portion of the Australia Precambrian Shield is 0.90 ± 0.02 μcal/cm secᴼC. This is only about half the average (2.13 ± 0.09)...[Show more]
