The KONTIKI final report summarises the results from the three-year KONTIKI project (CONTInental Crust and Heat Generation In 3D) established by NGU and StatoilHydro to improve the understanding of heat flow along the Norwegian continental margin. A compilation of c. 4000 new and old geochemical data is used to produce the first map of radiogenic heat production in bedrock, covering large tracts of Norway. In general granitic rocks have higher heat production than intermediate and mafic rocks.
