Overpressure is a polysemic word that has a variety of meanings within and across different disciplines. This is likely to be a particular problem in analysis of geothermal resources, where reservoir engineers, volcanologists and structural geologists may each confidently use overpressure but mean different things. We suggest that, to avoid confusion, the term should be carefully and accurately defined whenever used, and ideally only used to mean fluid pressure in excess of hydrostatic pressure.
