Hydrogeochemistry Fundamentals and Advances, Environmental Analysis of Groundwater (Volume 3)
This is the third and final volume in the series, Hydrogeochemistry Fundamentals and Advances. It is a review of natural water composition formation in the oceanic crust and on the continents. It begins with a concept of Earth’s hydrospheres, their interrelations and a brief description of the atmospheric water. The main chapters are devoted to the formation of underground water in the ocean floor and on the continents. Every chapter begins with a description of surface water as most accessible and ends with a characteristic of the underground water composition and formation environment. Natural water descriptions include their isotope composition and the contents of mineral, gas and organic components. Among the parameters affecting the formation environment, a major attention is devoted to the tectonic conditions and the effects of hypergenesis, epigenesis and metamorphism under a spreading and subduction environment.
