The purpose of the International Journal of Terrestrial Heat Flow and Applied Geothermics (IJTHFA) is to provide a forum for publication of results of high-quality research work dealing with recent advances in field measurement of terrestrial heat flow, regional and global geothermal data analysis, model studies of heat transfer in the Earth's interior and practical applications of geothermal studies.
The focus is on publication of new experimental and theoretical works on deep crustal temperatures, geothermal gradients, thermal properties of geologic materials, radiogenic heat production, magma interactions at shallow and deep crustal levels, thermo-tectonic processes affecting continental and oceanic crust, uplift and subsidence, thermal models of crust and lithosphere and studies on structure and evolution of planetary interiors.
Also welcome are new works in applied geothermics, with focus on assessments of near surface geothermal manifestations, heat transfer by groundwater flows, thermal maturation of hydrocarbons, climate history, geothermal aspects of mining and engineering and recent advances in instrumentation for geothermal studies.
IJTHFA considers manuscripts on the condition that they have not been published already nor are they under consideration for publication elsewhere. Articles, submitted for publication in JTHFA is scheduled to undergo peer review process, which is single blinded. All manuscripts submitted must be written in English language. Accepted manuscripts are subject to editorial changes.
Periodicity: International Journal of Terrestrial Heat Flow and Applied Geothermics has plans to publish two issues per year, in the months of April and October.
