The aim of this book is to be a “handbook for geologists and geophysicists who manipulate thermal data, particularly for petroleum exploration.” The book is meant to be a long-term reference source for earth scientists and engineers, particularly those working in the oil-exploration industry, but also a basis for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in geology and geophysics. For this purpose, the book is divided into three parts. Part one covers the thermal state of the earth, Part two, measurement techniques, and Part three, modelling techniques.
