Tenu A., Constantinescu T., Davidescu F., Nuti S., Noto P., Squarci P. Research on the thermal waters of the western plain of Romania. In: Geothermics, vol. 10 (1) pp. 1 - 28. Elsevier, 1981.
A study was made of two geothermal areas of the Western Plain of Romania in order to improve our knowledge of the thermal aquifers. In the first area. Oradea-Satu Mare, the results of isotope and chemical analyses of the hyperthermal waters, along with the geological, hydrogeological and geothermal information, lead to hypotheses on the genesis of the waters, the age and exchange mechanisms, and recharge, of the various aquifers. The Pontian aquifer, which is the most important of the region, is shown to have a complicated hydrodynamics, and the thermal waters seem to originate from a mixing between a very old, meteoric water and a syngenetic saline fluid. Two different types of thermal waters were identified in the second area. Arad-Timisoara; these differences are worth further study in view of future exploitation. The thermal waters in the Pontian reservoir in the northern part of this area have a low salinity and relatively fast circulation. The fluids in the southern part have a higher temperature but are found at deeper levels; they also show a high salinity and modest flow-rate and seem to have no natural recharge.
