The vertical migration of a perfect gas saturated with aqueous vapor is studied with a view toward determining what effect it may have on the porous strata through which it passes.It is found that evaporation of water and the consequent concentration of minerals may occur at certain depths. Further, it is pointed out that the cooling due to the evaporation of water and the expanding gas may be a contributing factor in the appearance of geothermal anomalies.Suggestions for further study are included.
