Abstract

Heat production of outcropping metamorphic and granitic rocks from the Spanish Central System (SCS) is
similar to other surface heat production estimates in Paleozoic provinces (average A value 2.64 mWm-3).
However, heat flow range in the SCS is higher than for Paleozoic terranes (70-90 mWm-2 instead of 45-70
mWm-2). Contribution of mantle to the heat budget is estimated to be 27 mWm-2. Thus, a slightly higher
mantle heat flow combined with a lower crust with a markedly high heat production (average A value
1.04 mWm-3) may explain the high estimated surface heat flow.
