Sample collection into sterile vacuum tubes to preserve arsenic speciation in natural water samples
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2013-08)
The accurate speciation analysis of arsenic is a serious concern for water quality monitoring programs. Because the preservation of sample integrity until analysis is one of the most important aspects of speciation, this ...
An integrated assessment of water quality in an arsenic containing aquifer: Milestones from hydrogeology to public health
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012)
A multi-disciplinary research is being conducted in Simav Plain, Turkey where an arsenic containing aquifer is at the center of attention. The study is not only aimed to understand the sources and mechanisms of the ...
High arsenic levels in water resources Resulting from geogenic resources: A case study from Muratlar Region, NW Turkey
(International Association of Hydrogeologists, 2012)
A large number of the studies on arsenic (As) in groundwater have been carried out over the last decades and a high concentration of this element has been identified in different parts of world. Muratlar Region in the ...
The relation of geogenic and antrophogenic factors with blood and hair lead and arsenic levels in women living in Çan and Bayramiç districts of Çanakkale province
Objective: Mining areas and associated industrial activities carry considerable risks for human health due to multi-pathway exposure of heavy metals such as arsenic and lead. The objective of this study was to compare ...
Tracing the relative distribution of arsenic species in groundwater and its association with soil arsenic levels in the Simav Graben area, Turkey
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)
A comprehensive hydrogeochemical assessment was conducted in the Simav Plain, Turkey where major health concerns were reported and elevated arsenic (As) levels were previously found. Boreholes drilled in the plain were ...
Naturally occurring arsenic in terrestrial geothermal systems of western Anatolia, Turkey: Potential role in contamination of freshwater resources
Arsenic (As) contamination in terrestrial geothermal systems has been identified in many countries worldwide. Concentrations higher than 0.01mg/L are detrimental to human health. We examined potential consequences for As ...
