Abstract: A comprehensive hydrogeochemical study of the cold and thermal groundwaters of the presently quiescent volcanic system of Methana was undertaken collecting 59 natural water samples during the period 2004-2007. Methana is a peninsula whose climatology and hydrology can be compared to the nearby small islands of the Aegean Sea. Similarly the chemical and isotopic composition of its water is dominated by the mixing of seawater with meteoric water. But the simple mixing trend is modified by water-rock interaction processes, enhanced by the dissolution of endogenous CO2, leading to strong enrichments in Alkalinity, Calcium, Barium, Iron and Manganese.
