An Exciting New Pilot Partnership

Geofluids is part of an exciting new pilot partnership between Wiley and Hindawi. From 01 January 2016, the journal will become fully open access. Geofluids will remain a Wiley title but will be published and hosted by Hindawi, and will benefit from Hindawi’s experience and expertise in publishing open access titles. Geofluids will continue to undergo a rigorous peer review process ensuring that quality remains high. Manuscripts submitted on or after 16 June 2016 and accepted for publication will be published as open access articles, immediately free to read, download and share. Authors or their funder will be required to pay an Article Publication Charge upon acceptance. For further information, please click here

The Role of Pore Pressure in Naturally-Triggered and Human-Induced Seismicity

Guest Editors: Paul Hsieh, and Katie Keranen and John Bredehoeft

The role of pore pressure in seismicity is of broad interest in light of issues associated with deep injection of liquid waste, development of energy resources, seismic hazard mitigation, and geologic carbon sequestration. There is also increasing awareness that even relatively small changes in pore pressure, such as those resulting from rainfall or long-term withdrawal of groundwater, can trigger earthquakes. The Special Thematic Issue is intended to highlight the interplay between geomechanical and fluid-flow processes as they relate to various kinds of natural, triggered and induced seismicity. Contributors from diverse fields, including seismology, geophysics, hydrogeology, structural geology, geodesy, and geothermal and petroleum engineering, are welcome. Authors are encouraged to present cross-disciplinary research that includes both fluid flow and seismicity. Manuscript submission deadline is 31 January, 2016. Please contact Paul Hsieh ( or Katie Keranen ( for more information.

Geofluids Special Thematic Issues

Geofluids publishes regular Special Thematic Issues

Recent publication:-

“Crustal Permeability” - available in 2015

The topic of crustal permeability is of broad interest because permeability controls important geologic processes such as the advection of heat and solutes or generation of anomalous pore pressures and is particularly timely in light of the issues associated with hydrofracturing, enhanced geothermal systems, and geologic carbon sequestration.
