Identifying the mutual interrelations between different physical parameters of geological associations is highly important for correctly carrying out an integrated geophysical analysis, making the necessary corrections to observed physical values, the recognition of many geodynamic processes and solving various other problems. Since temperature is one of the fundamental physical properties, it is crucial to establish some correlations between temperature and other geophysical fields.
