### Abstract

Based on the Golmshtok formulation and basic equations, a computer solution is proposed for a direct sedimentation heat-flow problem - the calculation of the temperature distribution in sediments at any instant of geologic time. A number of integrals in the solution are reduced to an explicit form, and numerical integration is performed to a preset accuracy. The inverse heat-flow problem - the determination of basement heat-flow (unaffected by sedimentation) from borehole temperature measurements - is formulated.
