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

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.

Global thermal model for the continental lithosphere TC1 on a 5 deg x 5 deg grid (Artemieva, 2006)
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.

LAB & THERMAL STRUCTURE OF THE LITHOSPHERE IN GREENLAND AND EUROPE    
Two regional thermal models for the lithosphere are available (Artemieva, 2019)
The databases include:
  • lithosphere thermal thickness;
  • predicted surface heat flux.
