Summary:The thermal diffusivity (a), specific heat (Cp) and thermal conductivity (lambda) of granite, basalt, gabbro-diorite and microcline were measured from 350 to 1100 K. Above 500 K the observed behaviour of Cp is in accordance with the Dulong-Petit law. lambda decreases at a higher rate than T-1 for granite (wrongly attributed to graphite in the printed abstract). In basalt, lambda decreases more slowly than T-1; the same applies to gabbro-diorite and microcline. [C.M.B.H.]
