Frontiers in Geofluids is a collection of invited paperschosen to highlight recent developments in our understanding ofgeological fluids in different parts of the Earth, and published tomark the first ten years of publication of the journalGeofluids. The scope of the volume ranges from thefundamental properties of fluids and the phase relationships offluids encountered in nature, to case studies of the role of fluidsin natural processes. New developments in analytical andtheoretical approaches to understanding fluid compositions, fluidproperties, and geological fluid dynamics across a wide range ofenvironments are included. A recurrent theme of research publishedin Geofluids is the way in which similar approaches can beapplied to geological fluids in very different settings and this isreflected in the diverse range of applications of fluid studiesthat are included here. They include deep groundwater flow,hydrocarbons in faulted sedimentary basins, hydrothermal ores, andmultiphase flow in mid-ocean ridge systems. Other topics coveredare geothermal waters, crustal metamorphism, and fluids in magmaticsystems.
The book will be of great interest to researchers and studentsinterested in crustal and mantle fluids of all sorts.
