THERMAL STRUCTURE OF THE CONTINENTAL LITHOSPHERE
                 (REGIONAL GEOTHERMS AND DEPTH TO LAB)
                 CONSTRAINED BY SURFACE HEAT FLOW

Three out of five original databases produced by Irina Artemieva
and her co-authors are available in digital form for free downloads
EUNAseis: CRUSTAL STRUCTURE OF EUROPE, GREENLAND
                   AND THE NORTH ATLANTIC REGION
SibCrust: CRUSTAL STRUCTURE OF SIBERIA
                (West Siberian Basin and Siberian Craton)
Surface heat flow data based on the compilation by the International Heat Flow Commission
(IHFC) are available for free download,
as well as a low-resolution version of the global thermal model.

For the latter, please refer to the original publication for explanations on the methods, model parameters,
model resolution, and sensitivity analysis (
Artemieva and Mooney, 2001; Artemieva, 2006).
Surface heat flow on the continents on a 3 deg x 3 deg grid.
This file is based on reliable heat flow data as compiled in the global heat flow data base of H.Pollack et al.
(1993) and updated for  new borehole measurements
Qo-conts-3deg.dat
Explanatory note 1
Surface heat flow on the continents on a 5 deg x 5 deg grid.
This file is based on reliable heat flow data as compiled in the global heat flow data base of H. Pollack et al.
(1993) and updated for new borehole measurements.
This low-resolution model allows to close many white spots with poor data coverage.
Qo-conts-5deg.dat
Explanatory note 2
Global thermal model for the continental lithosphere TC1 on a 5 deg x 5 deg grid.*
The database includes:
  • mantle temperatures at depths of 40, 50, 100, 150, and 200 km;
  • temperature gradient in the crust and the lithospheric mantle;
  • depths to isotherms of 550, 900,and 1300 deg C.
  • The latter value provides the lithosphere thermal thickness.
TC1-5deg.dat
Explanatory note 3
Thermal model in low resolution (interpolated on a 5 deg x 5 deg) is available at the bottom of this page.
Will be available for download

* Note: the file is based on the global 1 deg x 1 deg TC1 model (see explanatory note and Artemieva, 2006).
In addition to the thermal regime of the continental upper mantle, the model includes my 1 deg x 1 deg global compilation of
