Events

  • Sponsor Seminars

  • Training Events

    These are scheduled events to help delegates test out the tools and platform we will be using for the Q&A and other events at the conference.

  • Workshops

    Our workshop program provides training and teaching in topics across geochemistry and related fields. We are currently liaising with the workshop organisers to ascertain if any workshops can become virtual. Any updates will be added to this page.

With a crystalline brine-source being reasonably ruled out, I was wondering if you had any thoughts as to the origins of the ionic content/salinity?


Submitted by Jennifer McIntosh on
Interesting study that should provide important results on fluid and microbial community circulation through crystalline basement rocks. I had a similar question to Oliver's: you mention cation/anion chemistry of springs is distinct from surface waters and shield type brines. Are there any other groundwaters (i.e., potential fluid sources) that have similar major ion chemistries?

Can you expand on why the water chemistry (Cation/anion) of Saratoga Springs does not support mixing with a Precambrian crustal brine source?


Submitted by Weibin Chen on
Thanks for the nice ppts! It is intriguing to see that linear line above the GMWL! I have two questions: 1. Can you clarify cation/anion data further for source differentiation? So the cation/anion composition between the Saratoga Springs fluids and the Precambrian crustal brine waters are very different (i.e., no mixing scenario is derived)? 2. Are there any sample candidates to fill the gap between the Yellowknife end member and other samples to further strengthen this linear line? Thanks!
