Modelling of subsurface temperatures is based on various approaches, which typically focus on interpolation or numerical simulation procedures. Mostly, they are based on few single measurements and do not take into account the geological structure or lithological and thermal conductivity conditions of the subsurface.
Herein, we present a new approach for the parameterization and modelling of subsurface temperatures for areas with sparse available data. We used temperature log measurements from 26 spatially distributed boreholes drilled by oil and gas exploration companies.
