Aus den Rezensionen: "... widmet sich beschreibend ... Hydrothemalsystemen mit ihren Mineralisationen ... Druck, Papier, Druck der Abbildungen und sorgfaltige Durchsicht fuhrten zu einer Buchqualitat, wie man sie bei Springer-Lehr- und Handbuchern gewohnt ist. ... Das vorliegende ... handliche und ubersichtlich gestaltete Handbuch ist vor allem fur Wissenschaftler der Geo- und Biowissenschaften gedacht und im Besonderen auch fur solche, die an Minerallagerstatten ... arbeiten. ... eine wertvolle Hilfe und Quelle fast unuberschaubarer Informationen aller Art. ... ein umfangreiches, reichhaltiges, aktuelles, modernes, gutgestaltetes und daher uneingeschrankt empfehlenswertes Handbuch ..." (in: Zentralblatt Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, Month 2009, Issue 5/6, S. 950 f.). Hydrothermal processes on Earth have played an important role in the evolution of our planet. These processes link the lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere in continuously evolving dynamic systems. Terrestrial hydrothermal processes have been active since water condensed to form the hydrosphere, most probably from about 4.4 Ga. The circulation of hot aqueous solution (hydrothermal systems) at, and below, the Earth’s surface is ultimately driven by magmatic heat. This book presents an in-depth review of hydrothermal proceses and systems that form beneath the oceans and in intracontinental rifts, continental margins and magmatic arcs. The interaction of hydrothermal fluids with rockwalls, the hydrophere and the biophere, together with changes in their composition through time and space, contribute to the formation of a wide range of mineral deposit types and associated wallrock alteration. On Earth, sites of hydrothermal activity support varied ecosystems based on a range of chemotrophic microorganisms both at surface and in the subsurface. This book also provides an overview of hydrothermal systems associated with meteorite impacts and explores the possibility that hydrothermal processes operate on other terrestrial planets, such as Mars, or satellites of the outer planets such as Titan and Europa. Possible analogues of extraterrestrial putative hydrothermal processes pose the intriguing question of whether primitive life, as we know it, may exist or existed in these planetary bodies. Audience: This volume will be of interest to scientists and researchers in geosciences and life sciences departments, as well as to professionals and scientists involved in mining and mineral exploration..

Five Stars Very expensive book, but you get what you pay for
Descriptions of hydrothermal systems Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems is very well produced with many coloured figures and photos. Franco Pirajno provides many references in his review of hydrothermal ore deposits. The chapters are organized around genetic environments, which include impact craters and extraterrestrial settings. There is little in the way of experimental or theoretical hydrothermal geochemistry, but the book is already quite large at 1250 pages. There is a lot of descriptive information for readers who want an extensive, advanced survey of the subject. I would recommend this book for any serious library.
A good book on the subject A good book on the subject. Unfortunately there are numerous typos, inconsistent definition of mathematical formulas, and other proofreading errors that make me question the competency of the editor and the high price. For a book this expensive I expect a thoroughly edited and corrected version.
Pirajno Review - Hydrothermal Processes I enjoyed reading this book, nicely detailed with many figures. A good reference to read about a particular mineral occurrence or style, tied together by a common theme, with references to source data for follow up. Recommended.
