Title: Origin of the fluid discharges in the Republic of Moldova and possible implications on the geothermal potential.

The existence of thermo-mineral waters creates the adequate pre-requisites for the development of an extensive network fore the evaluation of a geothermal potential. The Republic of Moldova has a large spectrum of mineral and thermal waters, the latter being discharging in the high-water bed of river Prut in the southern regions of Moldova (Fig.1).
To the best of our knowledge, there is no a systematic investigation in this respect since most of the thermal waters, located along the Prut, and Nistru rivers are mostly used for tourist and therapeutic purpose..
