Sulphur isotopes as tracers of the influence of potash mining in groundwater salinisation in the Llobregat Basin (NE Spain).


Conventional chemical data for spring and river waters are presented together with sulphur isotopic data for dissolved sulphate to elucidate the source of water salinisation in the middle section of the Llobregat River. As dilution processes do not affect sulphur isotopic composition, the analysis of delta34S of dissolved sulphate in waters provides an… (More)
