  title={An Investigation of Fluoride Distribution in Ladnu Block of Nagaur District, Central Rajasthan},
  author={Mohammed Arif and Jakir Hussain and I. Hussain and Sunil Kumar},
Fluoride in groundwater is known to contaminate the water sources globally. Rajasthan, one of the states in the western part of India, is known to have excessive fluoride contenting groundwater sources. The present work involves assessment of water quality with special reference to fluoride in Ladnu block of Nagaur district in Rajasthan. Fluoride concentration of groundwater samples from forty villages of Ladnu Block was monitored and Thirty one villages were found to have a fluoride… Expand
