The study of the antineutrinos emitted by the radioactive decays in the Earth interior is the only way to investigate how much of the terrestrial heat is produced by these decays and which is their contribution in the various Earth components. The existence of the geo-neutrinos has recently been demonstrated by Borexino and confirmed by Kamland. Kamland had found some hints already in 2005 and 2008 Nevertheless the statistics is not yet enough to discriminate among the various geological models.
