Significance of existing forms of ionic dissolved substances for assessing quality of river upper sections
The work focuses on assessing the quality of river upper sections in the Krkonoše mountains national park (KRNAP). This research work has been in progress at Department of Water Technology and Environmental Engineering since 2010. This offers a possibility to compare newly acquired data with the values of indicators obtained in previous periods.
4-week sampling intervals will be maintained in the area of interest and basic chemical indicators will be assessed with the attention being paid to ionic dissolved substances in river upper sections. Based on the knowledge of surface water ionic composition and its temperature the research attempts to predict or model the occurrence of individual inorganic compounds of nitrogen and carbon. In connection with the mentioned characteristic data of slightly mineralized real water samples the aim is also to assess the calcium-carbonate equilibrium.
