This book is based on key papers given at the Kongsberg seminar in 1995. It covers the subject of fluid flow in rocks and the importance of this mechanism in geochemical transport and in the origin of metamorphic and igneous rocks. Fluid flow in rocks is currently an extremely important topic in geology, involving a large international and interdisciplinary research effort.
