Heat flow map of the Bohemian Massif

Main Article Content

V. Čermak


The heat flow pattern of the Bohemian Massif is presented by the compilation of 47 heat flow values. The isolines of the geothermal activity were constructed using also data in the neighbouring countries. A clear relationship between heat flow and the tectonic structure can be observed, higher geothermal activity corresponds to the zones of the weakened Earth's crust coinciding with two major deep faulted zones bordering the most rigid central part of the whole massif.
