Abstract:

The monograph is devoted to extremal estimations of the variation in temperature and phase states of water in the lithospheres upper layer. The author analyzes the changes in a normal geotemperature field under various climatic tendencies and estimates a climatic correction to the geothermal gradient in classical form without consideration of sediment accumulation, denudation and hydrogeologic factors. Calculated are the critical parameters of stationary and non-stationary cryolithic zones. The history of its development in the north of the Western Siberian Lowland is discussed.
