High arsenic levels in groundwater resources of Gediz Graben, Western Turkey
(CRC Press, 2016)
Gediz Graben situated in western Turkey is an area containing extensional structures with active tectonics and geothermal systems that serves as a suitable environment for the presence of high levels of arsenic (As) in ...
Occurrence of arsenic and related microbial signature of hydrothermal systems in Western Turkey
(Taylor & Francis, 2012)
