OCEANS AND CONTINENTS - SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES IN THE MECHANISMS OF HEAT-LOSS

Abstract:

The principal objective of this paper is to present a simple and self-consistent review of the basic physical processes controlling heat loss from the earth. We give a short summary of the oceanic and continental data and compare and contrast the respective mechanisms of heat loss. In the oceans we concentrate on the effect of hydrothermal circulation, and on the continents we consider in some detail a model relating surface heat flow to varying depth scales for the distribution of potassium,...
