In present study total arsenic, inorganic arsenic species and fluoride ion contaminations in underground water of Diplo and Chachro sub district of Tharparkar, Pakistan were investigated. The concentrations of total As, inorganic As species, F(-) and others physicochemical parameters were reported in terms of basic statistical parameters, principal(More)
This study presents a picture of occurrence of heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Cu, Cr, Co, Fe, Ni, Zn) in some selected valuable herbal drugs (G. glabra, O. bracteatum, V. odorata , F. vulgare, C. cyminum, C. sativum, and Z. officinalis) purchased from three different zones (southern, eastern, and western) of Karachi city using atomic absorption spectrophotometer.(More)
The present study investigated total arsenic (tAs), inorganic arsenic (iAs) species and fluoride ion (F(-)) contamination in underground water of Mithi and Nangarparkar subdistricts of Tharparkar, Pakistan. Statistical parameters, principal component analysis, cluster analysis, sodium absorption ratio and saturation indices (SI) were used to detect(More)
Fluoride concentrations in groundwater near Nagar Parkar in the Thar Desert of southeastern Pakistan range from 1.13 to 7.85 mg/l, and roughly 78% of the samples contain fluoride in concentrations that exceed the drinking water standard of 1.5mg/l set by WHO. The groundwater is alkaline (pH 7.1-8.4), brackish (TDS 449-15,933 mg/l), and classified as Na-Cl(More)

Factors regulating the occurrence of high fluoride (F(-)) concentrations in groundwater near Nagar Parkar Town, SE corner of Pakistan have been investigated considering lithological influences. F(-) ion concentrations in groundwater range up to 7.85 with mean value of 3.33 mg L(-1). Plots of major elements and their normative mineral composition reflect(More)
The role of seawater dilution, along with other water-quality components, has been studied to determine the causes of spatial distribution of high fluoride concentrations in the groundwater of the Diplo sub-district, Thar Desert, Pakistan. Fluoride ion concentration ranges of up to 7.60 mg/L were discovered, with mean and median values of 1.66 and 1.34(More)
The Bela Ophiolite (BO) is part of the Alpine-Himalayan orogenic belt. Rocks of BO were formed in both MORB and suprasubduction zone settings and include both ultramafic and mafic compositions. The ultramafic rocks were serpentinized after harzburgite. Orthopyroxene is more abundant than clinopyroxene. Serpentine commonly occurs as angular and medium sized(More)
