Theoretical concepts on stable geotherms define the thermal structure (Ranalli, 1995; Turcotte and Schubert, 2002): a) the heat is transported by conduction [1] and b) the radiogenic heat production decreases exponentially with depth [2].
The unit weight is checked against the lowest allowable weight as tested by Geotherm.
Areas with high geotherms and/or strongly metasomatized mantle are generally poorly prospective for diamonds, even where they contain the subcalcic "G10" garnets traditionally regarded as diamond related.
Geotherm II aims at overcoming the barriers by strengthening the institutional capacity within the Geothermal sub-sector in order to provide a conducive environment for private sector investments.
3] years from the intrusive event shows a cooling magma and an anomalous high temperature geotherm in the country rock.
Rutile ages from lower crustal xenoliths provide a minimum age for establishment of a cratonic geotherm at ca.
Orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene geothermobarometers indicate a harzburgite chemistry for some mineral separates and also that the postulated geotherm for the intrusive history of the dykes is permissive of diamond stability.

1 S/m, cannot be explained simply by the normal mantle geotherm but requires an additional conduction mechanism.
and Pysklywec (2008), but rather than focusing on near surface and crustal-scale consequences, we will discus the effects of rheologic stratification and initial geotherm on upper mantle structure.
