Abstract

Three methods are presented for determining paleo heat-flux from fission scar tracks in detrital apatite collected from wells. The annealing of the fission scar tracks is modelled using time-temperature integrals assuming first-order kinetics in agreement with the laboratory experiments over the last fifteen years.
