Activity

Constraints and Implications of Groundwater Temperature on the Formation of Mississippi Valley-type Zn-Pb Deposits part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This assignment illustrates the role of groundwater in transporting heat and its implications for the formation of hydrothermal ore deposits. The assignment uses a combination of graphs and algebraic equations that can be readily solved and plotted by hand or using a spreadsheet program. Using relatively simple techniques, key linkages in the sedimentary hydrothermal ore-forming process are demonstrated.
