Abstrakt

High levels of inorganic compounds in groundwater represent a significant problem in many parts of the world, with major economic, social and environmental drawbacks. The natural composition of groundwater derives mainly from the water–rock interactions, both in the vadose and saturated zone, but also depends on the biological and physico-chemical processes, the residence time and the initial composition of the recharge water. Contamination from industrial, agricultural and urban areas often overlaps with the natural features of groundwater, and the assessment of the impact of anthropogenic activities might be challenging.
