Partition of arsenic in soils sediments and the origin of naturally elevated concentrations in groundwater of the southern pampa region (Argentina)

Excessive arsenic concentrations above the Argentinean and WHO guidelines for drinking water (10 μg L−1) affects shallow aquifers of the southern Pampean Plain (Argentina) hosted in the Pampean and

Arsenic in groundwater in the southern lowlands of Nepal and its mitigation options: a review

As in several other countries of Southeast Asia (namely Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, China, Vietnam, and Cambodia) arsenic (As) concentrations in the groundwater of the lowlands of Nepal (the so

Distribution of Arsenic in geothermal waters in Sabalan area has been studied. In all samples concentration of As exceed the WHO limit for drinking water (10 μg/l) except one sample from Agh-su hot

Co-occurrence of arsenic and fluoride in the groundwater of Punjab, Pakistan: source discrimination and health risk assessment

It is proposed that pollutants originate, in part, from coal combusted at brick factories, and agricultural activities, and once generated, these pollutants were mobilized by the alkaline nature of the groundwater.

The origin of arsenic in soils and groundwater of the Pannonian part of Croatia

Arsenic content in surface layer (0-25 cm) varies from 0.9 mg/kg soil to almost implausible 490 mg/kg. The reason for the highest content in hydromorphic soils should probably be sought in recent



Arsenic contamination of groundwater in Bangladesh

A survey of well waters (n=3534) from throughout Bang- ' ladesh, excluding the Chitt;agong Hill Tracts, has shown that water from 27% of the 'shallow' tubewells, that is wells less than 150 m

Arsenic in Ground Water Supplies of the United States

Arsenic contamination of groundwater and drinking water in Vietnam: a human health threat.

The high arsenic concentrations found in the tubewells indicate that several million people consuming untreated groundwater might be at a considerable risk of chronic arsenic poisoning.

Arsenic in Ground Water of the United States: Occurrence and Geochemistry

Concentrations of naturally occurring arsenic in ground water vary regionally due to a combination of climate and geology. Although slightly less than half of 30,000 arsenic analyses of ground water

Arsenic in Ground Water of the Western United States

Natural occurrences of ground water with moderate (10 to 50 micrograms per liter) to high (greater than 50 micrograms per liter) concentrations of arsenic are common throughout much of the Western

Groundwater contamination with arsenic and other trace elements in an area of the pampa, province of Córdoba, Argentina

A geochemical study of groundwater of the pampa in the province of Córdoba, Argentina, was performed; the area covered approximately 10,000 km2.Physical-chemical parameters, dissolved solids, and

Arsenic species in groundwaters of the blackfoot disease area, taiwan.

The groundwaters collected from three wells in the Blackfoot disease (BFD) area in southwest Taiwan contain, on the average, 671 149 [mu]g of total dissolved arsenic/L, and the predominant arsenic species in the well waters of the BFD area is As[sup 3+].
