V.D. Lomtadze's experimental studies on compaction of clayey rocks allowed him to conclude that these rocks play an important role in the formation of groundwater in deep horizons of sedimentary basins (catagenesis zone) as accumulators of huge water reserves. Studies of V.D. Lomtadze contributed to the development of the sedimentogenic hypothesis of the origin of groundwater of the catagenesis zone.
