Hydrogeochemistry

Lectures:

  • Introduction. Chemical and physical properties of water, surface and ground water, oceans. Chemical equilibrium, kinetics, solubility, saturation index.
  • Measurements and analyses, techniques, accuracy and analytical errors, laboratories and standards.
  • Composition of natural surface and ground waters. TDS, conductivity, hardness, major, minor and trace elements in waters, gases, radioactive species. Physical properties (smell, turbidity, conductivity).
  • Influences on water composition: origin and values of ions in water environment, water-rock interaction. Carbonate and SiO2 systems.
  • Chemical reactions and processes in aquatic environment: reactions, precipitation/dissolution, speciation and complexation, redox reactions, mixing, sorption, ion exchange, evaporation, temperature influence, karstification, transport.
  • Numerical modeling of hydrogeochemical processes and reactions, quantitative calculations. Inverse modeling, determination of origin and changes of ground waters.
  • Classification of waters and facies.
  • Thermal and thermomineral waters.
  • Isotopes in hydrogeochemistry (fractionation, values, age dating, geothermometers).
  • Pollutants and water protection.
  • Display of water composition by maps and geochemical diagrams (Piper, Durov, Schoeller…).
  • Water legislation on composition and quality of surface and ground waters.
  • Presentation of recent actual activities and problems.
