PALAEOGEOTHERMS - IMPLICATIONS OF DISEQUILIBRIUM IN GARNET LHERZOLITE XENOLITHS

Abstract:

MEASURES of the Earth's thermal structure and evolution are important for understanding the driving forces of many geological processes. Estimates of the present variation of temperature with depth in the Earth can be made from surface heat-flow values together with assumptions concerning the composition, thermal conductivity and heat production of the crust and mantle1. More direct estimates have been made by calculating equilibrium temperatures and pressures of material brought to the Earth...
