A collaborative project to ensure a quality controlled, authenticated global database of heat flow values
The Global Heat Flow Data Assessment Project is designed to provide a quality controlled, authenticated global database of heat flow values and other thermal data. In this project, scientists from all over the world cooperate voluntarily to revise the current database. This project is ccordinated bei an Task Force of the International Lithosphere Program (ILP) and supports the International Heat Flow Commission (IHFC) whose mission includes promoting geothermal research and maintaining and disseminating the Global Heat Flow Database to the global community of Earth Scientists. To this end, screening, assessing and updating of each data entry compiled in the Global Heat Flow Database since 1939 is required. All project collaborators contribute with the revision of selected papers in this process to our vision of a quality controlled, authenticated global heat flow database.
