Journal Article: A Temperature Model Of The Crust Beneath The Barents Sea- Investigations Along Geotraverses

Abstract
2D and 3D modeling of the geothermal field was carried out along seven extended geotraverses in the Barents Sea compiled on the basis of CMP profiling and results of deep drilling. Depths of the zone characterized by catagenetic transformation of organic matter were calculated for different areas of the sedimentary basin. The minimal depth is confined to the South Barents Basin with the highest hydrocarbon resource potential established by geological exploration. In 3D models, this area is distinguished by a thermal dome recognized for the first time.
