Huntsberger and Lerche (1987) recently presented a method of obtaining information on the variation of paleo heat-flux with time in sedimentary basins by use of fission tracks in apatite. While this paper has the merit of drawing attention to the advantages of Apatite Fission Track Analysis over more conventional paleotemperature indicators, we suggest that it is flawed in various important respects.
