Elements: Hydrothermal Fluids

February 18, 2021

Fluids transfer heat and mass in the Earth. This issue explores the physical and chemical properties of hydrothermal fluids and how they affect geologic processes. The nature of hydrothermal fluids across a range of geologic settings; the interactions between fluids and rocks; and the interrelationships between fluid-driven processes in different settings are explored. Each article highlights both broad and specific overlaps between "normal" and ore-forming hydrothermal fluids and describes how the features of hydrothermal systems reflect the specific properties of fluids in different settings.
