[CEST2019_00469] Occurrence and distribution of hexavalent chromium in ground and surface waters in Cyprus under the CrITERIA project
by Zissimos A., Christofi C., Christoforou I., Rigas M.
Session: 14, Room:
The origin and distribution of hexavalent chromium, Cr (VI) over four seasonal cycles was investigated through a conceptual model that included three aquifer systems in Cyprus. An extensive water sampling grid covered two sea water intruded coastal aquifers, namely the Kokkinochoria (A1) and Kiti-Pervolia (A2) aquifers and the Troodos massif (A3). Analytical results give a first insight to the presence of Cr (VI). Areas A1 and A2 exhibit high conductivity and nitrate concentrations (due to NPK fertilisers and seawater intrusion).
