By William C. Haneberg, Peter S. Mozley, J. Casey Moore, Laurel B. Goodwin

Published through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

This quantity deals a pattern of the range of study on faults and fluid circulation within the overdue Nineties. It describes specified floor and subsurface characterization of fault-zone constitution and diagenesis with implications for hydrology and petroleum geology; the position of faults in geothermal platforms; laboratory reviews of rock mechanics, permeability, and geochemistry of faults and fault rocks; and mathematical modeling of fluid stream via faulted and fractured rocks.

The such a lot outstanding and attractive characteristic of the amount, in addition to the final study subject of faults and subsurface fluid stream, is its interdiscplinary nature. The authors are drawn from the fields of structural geology, engineering geology, geohydrology and hydrogeology, sedimentology, petroleum geology, geothermal geology, rock mechanics, and geochemistry. Likewise, the emphasis on faults instead of easy open fractures increases concerns now not addressed in a lot of the literature on move via fractured rocks. even though faults are one of those fracture and semantics can confuse the difficulty, faults are mostly extra advanced than the straightforward fractures which are the point of interest of such a lot paintings in fractured rock hydrology. such a lot significantly, faults may have very huge displacements (up to many kilometers) and boost advanced tectonic materials, gouge zones, and juxtaposition of rocks or sediments of alternative types.
