2D or not 2D: Are two dimensions enough to accurately model convective fluid flow through faults and surrounding host rocks?

Michael Kuehn, Conny Zeeb, Klaus Gessner & Michael Kuehn
In many studies of water-rock interaction, convective fluid flow has been invoked to explain diagenetic processes, metamorphism, or metal precipitation. Fluid convection in faults is increasingly recognised as an important mechanism for fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transport in hydrothermal systems, particularly in consolidated and crystalline rocks. Convection is influenced not only by heat transport processes within the fault but also by lateral heat transfer to and from the surrounding rock mass. There is...
