It is sometimes nicknamed the "Rubber Bible" or the "Rubber Book", as CRC originally stood for "Chemical Rubber Company".

Conductive heat flux. History of observations Pioneering measurements of temperature below the seafloor (. The heat flow per unit area diffusing by conduction along a thermal gradient, determined as the product of the thermal gradient and thermal conductivity. Petterson, 1949; Revelle and Maxwell, 1952; Bullard, 1954) were made to compare the thermal state of the ocean crust with that of continents and thus to improve the knowledge of the present-day heat loss from the Earth.

Variations in sea-floor depth and heat flow with age provide the main constraints on the thermal structure and evolution of the oceanic lithosphere. Joint fitting of heat flow and bathymetry yields a model with a hotter, thinner lithosphere than in previous models. The new model provides a significantly better fit to the data, including those from older lithosphere previously treated as anomalous. This will facilitate the analysis of lithospheric processes, including the effects of mid-plate volcanism and swells, regional subsidence, and hydrothermal circulation near spreading centres.

We also study seafloor fluid discharge, groundwater flow and the past ground surface temperature history through high-precision and long-term temperature measurements in marine sediments and land boreholes.

The lirst reported heat flow meas-urements were made in oceanic lithosphere by Revelle and Maxwell and in the continental lithosphereby Benfield and Bullard.

Leading researchers active in marine heat flow have contributed to this reference on current tectonic problems being addressed by marine geothermal research and on current techniques and instru-mentation. This easy-to-read handbook discusses the tectonic problems and new techniques by making reference to specific geo-graphical localities such as the Mediterranean, the Arctic, and the western Pacific. This volume contains two appendices which are invaluable to researchers in this field. Appendix A is a bibliography of all references relevant to marine heat flow published since 1965. This list, containing about six hundred publications, is arranged alphabetically and includes a cross-reference to Appendix B for those publications that contain heat flow measurements. Appendix B, containing heat flow measurements made since 1965, is presented in the format of the World Wide Data centre and will assist in compilation of heat flow in specific geographic regions.
