Thermal Gradient

This app will provide a very rough estimate of temperature at depth if needed for gas safety monitoring. Fits are generalized and not guaranteed accurate for all thermal gradients.
To use this app:
1. Enter any known values for depth and temperature (left panel). By default the seafloor value of 4 C is also included. The graph will automatically update based on your input.
2. Enter the depth value for the gas safety measurement. (right panel)
3. Temperature values based on linear and exponential regressions will populate (right panel). Update start values for exponential regression if needed.

Linear Regression

Exponential Regression

If the exponential fit does not look reasonable, adjust the start values for 'a' and 'b'.
These are not official IODP-JRSO applications and functionality is not guaranteed. User assumes all risk.
