Stefansson (U. of Iceland), Driesner (ETH Zurich, Switzerland), and Benezeth (CNRS-U. de Toulouse, France) present an extended review of the topics conveyed in a short course on Geothermal Fluid Thermodynamics held immediately prior to the August 2013 23rd Annual V.M. Goldshmidt Conference in Florence, Italy. They present nine chapters discussing: the molecular-scale fundament of geothermal fluid thermodynamics, thermodynamics of aqueous species at high temperatures and pressures (equations of state and transport theory), the carbonate system as an example of mineral solubility and aqueous speciation in hydrothermal conditions to 300 degrees Celsius, thermodynamic modeling of fluid-rock interaction at mid-crustal to upper-mantle conditions, speciation and transport of metals and metalloids in geological vapors, solution calorimetry under hydrothermal conditions, structure and thermodynamics of subduction zone fluids from spectroscopic studies, and thermodynamics of organic transformations in hydrothermal fluids.
