Abstract

The CO2-rich springs in the Kyungpook Province has been found at 16 locations. Most of the CO2-rich springs outflow along either fault zones or the geologic boundary between Mesozoic granites and their adjacent rocks. The CO2-rich water samples show a high CO2 concentration (PCO2 0.46 to 5.21 atm), weak acidic pHs, wide electrical conductivity values ranging from 422 to 2,280

Keywords CO2-rich springs, fault, chemical composition, δ13C, deep-seated CO2
