  1. 1. Arsenic Geochemistry in the Alluvial Aquifers of West Bengal, India : Implications for targeting safe aquifers for sustainable drinking water supply

    Författare :Ashis Biswas; Prosun Bhattacharya; Laurent Charlet; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Bengal Basin; Groundwater; Arsenic; Redox processes; Competing ions; Sustainable drinking water Supply;

    Sammanfattning : The natural occurrences of high (>10 μg/L) dissolved arsenic (As) in groundwater of Bengal Basin has put millions of people under the threat of chronic As exposure through drinking water. Present study has examined the processes that regulate As mobilization and its distribution in shallow aquifers and the potentiality of finding safe aquifers within shallow depth (. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : An elevated level of Arsenic (As) in aquifers from India and Bangladesh affecting the human health has been widely reported since the late 1980s. The thesis aim is to investigate the present status of As contamination and biogeochemical cycling with direct role of diverse indigenous bacterial communities in As cycling in the Bengal Delta Plain (BDP) aquifers in Nadia district, West Bengal (India).
