Part of the Lecture Notes in Earth System Sciences book series (LNESS)


This Chapter describes the most important thermal parameters such as conductivity, capacity, duffusivity and interrelation of these parameters between themselves. Effect of thermal anisotropy in some cases may significantly change the studied geothermal pattern. Investigation of melting points of rocks and minerals, and temperature and pressure influence to thermal properties of rocks and minerals and fluid density play an important role in development of deep geothermal models. It is shown that analysis of the early Earth atmosphere is significant for detecting some peculiarities of the modern geothermal regime of the Earth.
