Reactive Flow Modeling of Hydrothermal Systems. Michael Kühn. 261 Pp. Springer. Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences, Volume 103, 2004. Price $109.00.

Written by a geophysics expert in geothermal energy research and production, this book is a nice, compact introduction to the principles of modeling coupled fluid flow and fluid-mineral reactions in active geothermal systems, as used for heating and electricity generation. It combines a general introduction of physical and chemical principles of reactive transport modeling in geological systems with a number of specific case studies, mainly of basin-hosted geothermal systems in Germany. The first two chapters emphasize...
