Heat production calculalor

 

Calculate heat production (default parameters are from the Sybella Batholith)
Enter K20 in weight%, Th and U in ppm, rho (density) in kg/m3, and T (time) in Ma.

Make sure you press the "return" key after entering new values in eachtext field!

Note : 40K contribution in red line, 232Th contribution in green line, and combined 238U and 235U in blue line.

 

 

The heat production calculations performed in this applet are outlined in Turcotte & Schubert (1982, p.140) .
