About this book

Explores current research on shallow and deep groundwater, hydrothermal fluids, and landscaping. Contains methods to analyze and understand the geohydroderm and includes tools and strategies to understand shifting phenomena, observation data, multisampling and petroleum and coal formation.


Prologue: The observation-based, multi-sampling and multi-parametric research approachThe Geohydroderm and Its Major Groundwater-Containing Geosystems: Water propelled geological processes and shaped the landscapes of our friendly planet.Exploring and understanding the geohydroderm by sequences of observations and conclusions. Basic research concepts, aims and queries, tools and strategies.Shifting of Water and Salts between Oceans and Continents: Shallow cycling groundwater, its tagging by sea-spray and the underlying zone of static groundwater.Interstitial waters in rock strata beneath the vast oceans. Salt, gypsum and clay strata within sedimentary basins disclose large-scale evaporitic paleo-landscapes.Deep Groundwater Systems - Fossil Formation Waters: The geosystem of the fossil brine-tagged meteoric formation waters. Fossil formation waters range in age from tens-of-thousands to hundreds-of-millions years. Brine-tagged meteoric formation waters arecommon also in crystalline shields:Petroleum Hydrology: Anatomy of sedimentary basins and petroleum fields highlighted by formation waters. Evolution of sedimentary basins and petroleum highlighted by the facies of the host rocks and coal. Petroleum and coal formation in closedcompartments - the pressure-cooker modelHydrology of Warm Groundwater and Superheated Volcanic Systems: Mineral and warm waters: Genesis; recreation facilities and bottling. Water in hydrothermal and volcanic systems.Implementation, Research and Education: Data: acquisition, processing, monitoring, banking. Conclusions and research avenues. Education aspects of water, the unique fluid of planet EarthEpilogue: Three energy sources and one transporter - the geo-quartet unique to planet Earth.Answers and Discussions of the Exercise QuestionsReferencesIndex
