Water-Rock Interaction: Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium (WRI-8), Vladivostok, Russia, 15-19 August 1995

Water-rock interactions play an important role in nearly all physical and chemical processes operating on the Earth's surface and subsurface. This work contains the proceedings of the Eighth International Symposium on Water-Rock Interaction (WRI-8), held in Russia in 1995. Contents: Hydrothermal systems: modern and old, marine and continental; Ore deposits in modern and old geothermal systems; High-pressure and low-temperature metamorphism and low-pressure and high temperature metamorphism (paired Myashiro belts); Geochemical cycles as responses to global climate changes and anthropogenetic processes; Geochemical modelling of water-rock interaction processes; Organic processes in the water rock interaction system; Influence of mining industry on composition of ground and surficial waters;
