Abstract (in english)
   For some years, the Saxon Academy of Science at Leipzig (SAW) is engaged in the research project "Contributions to Environmental research by mean of Radiometric-Geochemical Methods" in the Vogtland area (Germany). The main goal is to investigate the hydrogeological and hydrochemical parameters of mineral springs in that region interrelations. here, the high CO2 degassing rates are of particular interest. The isotopic signature of these gases indicates an anomalous high mantle/crust contribution (Weinlich et al., 1999). A further geoscientifically important phenomenon of this region is the high seismicity, in particular the Vogtland/NW Bohemian earthquake swarms. Therefore, we have tried to use the mantle-originated fluids as transport media for information from the seismogenic horizons.
   The variations of the parameters recorded continuously at the springs for years show a connection to the seismic events of the epicentral area of Nový Kostel in the Czech Republic.In particular, numerous anomalous degassing intervals were recorded at the mineral spring "Wettinquelle" (formerly: Radonquelle), Bad Brambach, prior to earthquake occurred in the region of Nový Kostel
