  • Anonymous


The International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry and the Geological Survey Prague have organized sessional meetings to be held in Prague, Czechoslovakia, September 9–13, 1974, followed on September 14–17 with a field trip to sources of CO2-rich waters in the northwestern part of the Bohemian massif. The symposium will consider such diverse topics as criteria for distinguishing thermal and mineral waters of different origins; dilute, low temperature water-rock interactions in relation t o weathering and nutrient migration;; experimental, kinetic, and computer modeling of water-rock interaction and fluid compositions, active geothermal systems;water-rock interactions in magmatic and metamorphic environments; and interstitial waters, diagenesis, and membrane filtration. Other relevant subjects may be considered if time permits.
