Numerous theories have been proposed to explain theorigin of subsurface carbon dioxide. The conclusion isreached that, although carbon dioxide may be formed in many ways, most of the carbon dioxide, in appreciablylarge accumulations had its origin in the breakdown of impure limestone or dolomite under the heat of igneous intrusion.

Fluids in Subsurface Environments
Sourced from a 1964 symposium on The Geology of Fluids, this publication brings together an array of papers dealing with many aspects of the subject. Included are 18 papers covering basin-specific research as well as basic research on fluids in subsurface environments.
