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 ...
Geochemical characterization of acid mine lakes in Northwest Turkey and their effect on the environment
Mining activity generates a large quantity of mine waste. The potential hazard of mine waste depends on the host mineral. The tendency of mine waste to produce acid mine drainage (AMD) containing potentially toxic metals ...
Naturally occurring arsenic in terrestrial geothermal systems of western Anatolia, Turkey: Potential role in contamination of freshwater resources
