Water-rock interaction, dissolution/precipitation, residence time and geological structures are the main factors determining the chemical composition and quality of water and consequently human health issues. In this perspective, the assessment of processes that alter, along groundwater flow paths, deep and shallow, natural and mineral water chemistry can provide useful information for the characterization of this resource and its management. To identify water sources and driving mechanisms different approaches can be used, such as the abundance and mobility of major, minor and trace elements, dissolved gases, isotopic tools, reaction path modelling and statistical analysis. We welcome contributions from students, young and senior researchers focusing their study, with traditional and/or innovative methodologies, on various topics including (but not limited to): water-rock interaction processes, water quality, evaluation of geogenic contaminants in water, gas geochemistry, fluid origin, geochemical cycle of elements and chemical and isotopic evolution of groundwater.
