Gianelli G., Scandiffio G. The Latera geothermal system (Italy): chemical composition of the geothermal fluid and hypotheses on its origin. In: Geothermics, vol. 18 (3) pp. 447 - 463. Pergamon, 1989.
The chemistry of the fluid produced in the Latera geothermal field and the petrology of the hydrothermal minerals found in drill cores and cutting suggest mixing of a hot Na-Cl fluid with fluids circulating in carbonate units. Evidence exists of a deep fluid of a possible magmatic origin. The very high temperature (above 400C) measured in a deep drill hole indicates the presence of a geothermal fluid, possibly at a depth of less than 4 km. Generally high temperatures at depth a fluid that still has magmatic characteristics. However, this fluids is certainly mixed with Ca-SO4-HCO3 waters coming from the Mesozoic carbonate rocks below the volcanic cover
