Transformation of Trace Element Composition of Fresh Natural Waters in the Central Part of Upper Kama Potash Deposit
Perm State University, Russian Federation
Potash salts primarily used in the manufacturing of potash fertilizer are an important and highly valuable commodity in our modern economy. This study includes analysis of trace element composition of fresh natural waters (rivers, springs) in the area of the Upper Kama potash deposit. Indicators of the change in the trace element composition of water impacted by potash mine effluents were determined. The results of the study will allow a more comprehensive approach to environmental monitoring and to a list of environmental protection measures in such regions.
