B1T model for 1D temperature and rheology reconstruction

A generic property database was developed that can be used to gain insight in the thermal properties and mechanical strength that one could expect for different basin settings, crustal geometries, and thermal-tectonic ages. The thermal property tables (Hantschel & Kauerauf, 2009) and rheological properties (Tesauro et al., 2009) were combined and coupled with a simple 1D thermal-mechanical model into an Excel spreadsheed tool that can be used for the above described purposes.
