Abstract

A variational approach to identify the depth distribution of radiogenic heat generation in the crust is utilized. It is inferred that in the crust, in which at least the upper section represents a porous medium where fluid circulation may exist, the exponential distribution, including an additional term corresponding to the removed part of radioelements, is optimal.
