Significance of the Sedimentary Water Integrity of the Neo-Pleistocene Aquifer System in the Northern Near-Caspian Region for the Development of the Caspian Sedimentary Basin

  • O. V. GolovanovaEmail author


This paper presents a new model of the distinct formation of groundwater of the aquifer system of the Northern Near-Caspian Region. The absence of sedimentary water displacement in plane is shown. An increase in mineralization and a wide range of characteristics of the composition and properties of rocks and waters are explained by processes of the mass-exchange in the water-rock system under conditions of low groundwater flow. The complex of the factors and conditions responsible for the integrity or displacement of sedimentary waters is determined, and it is suggested that it should be used to study the current and ancient sedimentary basins.
