Recently the Borexino  and KamLAND  collaborations reported evidence of the geo-neutrino signal at more than 4 sigma. These experimental results constrain the contribution of radiogenic heat production in the Earth and provide a crucial test of the existing Bulk Silicate Earth (BSE) models. We developed a high resolution, geospatial reference model for the crust and lithospheric mantle in order to determine the U and Th concentration in the deep Earth from the geo-neutrino signal.
