Role of the zone of aeration in the formation of groundwater chemical composition

Jerzy J. Małecki


Interpretation of the data collected during this research project indicate that the basic processes leading to the formation of the chemical composition of groundwaters occur mostly in the soil zone. Soil mineralogical composition, organic material content, and the type of plant cover principally decide the type and amount of dissolved components found in shallow groundwater.
