About this book

This book is based on key papers given at the Kongsberg seminar in 1995. It covers the subject of fluid flow in rocks and the importance of this mechanism in geochemical transport and in the origin of metamorphic and igneous rocks. |Fluid flow in rocks is currently an extremely important topic in geology, involving a large international and interdisciplinary research effort.

... a commendable mix of high quality reviews and new results that will attract both the advanced undergraduate and postgraduate professional...the book is very neatly produced and well essential library purchase... -Geoscientist; ...well referenced and up to date... - KNGMG


Fluid flow in sedimentary basins: relationships between diagenesis, rock properties and subsurface pressures. Episodic basin-scale fluid expansion from thick mudstone sequences. Flow and transport during contact metamorphism and associated hydrothermal activity: an example from the Oslo Rift. Stochastic modelling of fluid flow and fluid-rock interactions during contact metamorphism. Evolution of fluids during the metamorphic cycle. Fluid flow, deformation and metamorphism in the deep crust. Aqueous mass transport in high pressure environments: experimental constraints. Quantification of porous networks in the Soultz-sous-Forets granite by image analysis and correlation with real permeability measurements. Surface chemical controls on pore fluid connectivity. Geological factors influencing focussed fluid flow. Focused fluid movement in the lower crust: thermal consequences and silica transport. Flow along fractures in sedimentary basins. Transient versus continuous fluid flow in seismically-active faults: an investigation by numerical and electric analog modelling. Network topology, percolation and dual homogenization for coupled hydro-mechanical properties of fractured rocks. Computer modelling of immiscible fluid-fluid displacement and dispersion in fractures.
