"...the strength of the volume lies in the last five chapters. We are treated to a rich feast of applications ranging from chemical reactions on gradient flows and mixing zones, through fluid instabilities and overturning problems, through trapping and migration of hydrocarbons and mineralization consequences, to thermally driven convection and its impact on diagenesis, cementation, dissolution, and concentration gradient reactions. Quite an excellent and mentally filling repast....would make for an excellent year-long graduate course in quantitative geodynamic processes....This book provides a great wealth of techniques for handling problems associated with subsurface flow, and excellent insights into methods, procedures, and basic understanding. I could only wish that all books (including my own) could be written with such clarity of thought and word craft." Ian Lerche, Geophysics
"...a truly good book that I can recommend to graduate students and researchers seriously interested in understanding rock-fluid interactions and the patterns that result." Bernard P. Boudreau, Geochimica et Cosmochimica
"...an extremely well-written and thought-provoking book, which contains many results not previously published. It is likely to have considerable influence on future research." Herbert E. Huppert, Journal of Fluid Mechanics
"...summarizes flow and reaction fundamentals and applications of these fundamentals in subsurface systems. In addition to its function as a textbook, this monograph will also be useful for self-study or as a general background reference for those in related fields." Cass T. Miller, American Scientist
"...will undoubtedly establish itself as a core text for both students and researchers." Lev Truskinovsky, PAGEOPH
