2010), salt incorporated in marine sediments at the time of deposition (connate salt) and the process of geological weathering (e.g.
Ellis and Mahon, 1977; Nicholson, 1993): (1) Meteoric water--surface water, that has travelled to depths of several kilometers through permeable horizons and fractures; (2) Connate or formation water ('Fossil' waters)--water buried with host sediments which has been out of contact with the atmosphere for long geological periods; (3) Juvenile water ('new')--water derived from primary rock magma, not previously part of the hydrosphere; (4) Metamorphic water--specially modified connate water derived from hydrous minerals during their recrystallization to less hydrous minerals during metamorphism; (5) Magmatic water--Water derived from magma that may not necessarily be juvenile water, because magma may incorporate deep circulating meteoric water or water from sediments.
