The Science of Paleohydrogeology and Its Objectives in Ore Deposit Studies

  • Evgeny A. Baskov


Paleohydrogeology belongs to the family of historical sciences of a geological profile. It is concerned with reconstructions of hydrogeological conditions that existed in the past in the Earth’s interior. Paleohydrogeology is engaged in the study of the ancient hydrogeological environment and its evolution in the course of geological time. As Chirvinsky (1933) said figuratively, paleohydrogeology is “a fossilized hydrogeology”.
