• 1- The formation temperature at 12 km was found to be 95°C. The mean surface temperature for the region is 34°F. Determine the geothermal gradient Gt. Find the temperature in °C, °F, °R, and °K at depths of 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, 6000, 8000, and 10,000 ft. Plot temperature in °F vs. depth in ft and in °C vs. depth in meter. Will you consider this an average geothermal gradient? Why?
• 2-What are the values of average geothermal gradient, normal hydrostatic pressure, and lithostatic pressure? Why hydrostatic pressure is different from lithostatic pressure?
