  1. : refers to the temperature gradient; 0 refers to the uncorrected value; 1 to the correction for the drilling effect (true temperature at well depth) only; and 2 to the corrections for both drilling and paleoclimatic effects (theoretical temperature if the surface temperature had stayed constant through time). Qo min, and Qo max are the surface heat flux calculated for the optimistic and pessimistic scenarios. σ is for standard deviation
