East African Rift Temperature and Heat flow model (EARTH)

Dataset title East African Rift Temperature and Heat flow model (EARTH)
Dataset creators Darren J. R. Jones, British Geological Survey
Dataset theme Geoscientific Information
Dataset abstract

A geographic information system (GIS) heat flow and temperature model of East Africa created by extracting data from open sources into a series of shapefiles and rasters containing information on geothermal sites, hot spring locations, digital elevation model, surface temperature, geothermal gradients, thermal conductivities and heat flow data, major faults, surface geology, crustal basement, electrification grid system and population density across East Africa. This data is stored in the World Geodetic System (WGS) 1984 Geographic Projection System.
