Supplement to: Langseth, Marcus G; Ludwig, William J (1983): A heat flow measurement on the Falkland Plateau. In: Ludwig, WJ; Krasheninnikov, VA; et al. (eds.), Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (U.S. Govt. Printing Office), 71, 299-303, https://doi.org/10.2973/dsdp.proc.71.109.1983
At Hole 511, on the margin of Maurice Ewing Bank, eastern Falkland Plateau, successful bottom hole temperature measurements were made at 52.5 and 113 meters below the seafloor. The results show a regular increase of temperature with depth of 0.074 °C m**-1.
Conductivity measurements on core samples, made on board ship and at the Lamont-Doherty repository, gave a mean value of 0.842 W °C**-1 m**-1. The heat flow indicated by these observations is 62.3 mW m**-2 (1.49 HFU), a value that is compatible with the geological evolution of the plateau.
