Radiogenic heat production in the Earth is dominated by three elements: K, Th and U, which mainly reside in the Earth's mantle and crust. The global budget is determined from the fact that Th and U are both refractory. Thus, it is believed that the Th/U ratio of the bulk Earth must be identical to those of chondritic meteorites. In contrast, K is a volatile element, but like Th and U …
