Description - Frontiers in Geofluids by Bruce Yardley
Frontiers in Geofluids is a collection of invited papers chosen to highlight recent developments in our understanding of geological fluids in different parts of the Earth, and published to mark the first ten years of publication of the journal Geofluids. The scope of the volume ranges from the fundamental properties of fluids and the phase relationships of fluids encountered in nature, to case studies of the role of fluids in natural processes. New developments in analytical and theoretical approaches to understanding fluid compositions, fluid properties, and geological fluid dynamics across a wide range of environments are included. A recurrent theme of research published in Geofluids is the way in which similar approaches can be applied to geological fluids in very different settings and this is reflected in the diverse range of applications of fluid studies that are included here. They include deep groundwater flow, hydrocarbons in faulted sedimentary basins, hydrothermal ores, and multiphase flow in mid-ocean ridge systems. Other topics covered are geothermal waters, crustal metamorphism, and fluids in magmatic systems.
The book will be of great interest to researchers and students interested in crustal and mantle fluids of all sorts.

Author Biography - Bruce Yardley
Bruce Yardley is Professor in the School of Earth andEnvironment at the University of Leeds, UK, and was a foundingeditor of the journal Geofluids. His research concerns the natureand role of fluids in the crust, including metamorphic processes,hydrothermal ore systems and sedimentary basins. He obtained hisPhD at the University of Bristol in 1975, and has been at theUniversity of Leeds since 1985. He held a Harkness Fellowship atthe University of Washington, Seattle, and has recently been aHumboldt Awardee at the Deutsches GeoForschungZentrum, Potsdam. Craig Manning is a Professor of Geology and Geochemistryin the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University ofCalifornia Los Angeles. He received BA degrees in Geology and inGeography from the University of Vermont, and MS and PhD degrees inGeology from Stanford University. His research focuses onexperimental and theoretical study of geologic fluids at highpressure and temperature. Grant Garven is a Professor in the Department of Geologyand in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering atTufts University, near Boston. Originally trained as a fieldgeologist in the Canadian Shield, his career has mostly focused onmega-scale groundwater flow in sedimentary basins and relatedgeologic processes. He received his BSc in Geology at theUniversity of Regina, MS in Hydrology at the University of Arizona,and PhD degree at the University of British Columbia.
