[CEST2019_00473] Seasonal variation and spatial distribution of Arsenic in groundwater in a ryolithic volcanic area of Lesvos Island, Greece
by Zkeri E., Aloypi M., Gaganis P.

A research conducted in water wells located in the rhyolithic volcanic area of Mandamados, Lesvos Island, Greece, indicated that significant seasonal variation of arsenic concentration in groundwater exists mainly in wells near the coastal zone. However, there were differences among those coastal wells with regard to the processes and factors responsible for the observed seasonal variability of the element, although they are all located in a small homogeneous area.

[CEST2019_00474] Trace metals in soils and water in the area of a small - medium waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling plant
by Zkeri E., Tzoraki O., Lasithiotakis M., Sinioros P.

A research conducted in order to investigate the environmental impact of an e-waste recycling plant to the soil and water resources of the surrounding area. Therefore trace elements in both water and soil samples were determined with Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Heavy metals in water comply with drinking water criteria, except Pb.

[CEST2019_00880] The comparison of sediment quality in the rivers the Eastern Slovakia by Potential ecological risk index
by Singovszka E., Balintova M.

The current pollution of sedimentary environment is very serious and exceeds load capacity limit and it is influenced by other external factors such as climate, hydrodynamic conditions, pH, salinity, Eh, temperature and other. This influences can cause the heavy metals are re-released from the sediments which were long-term accumulated what can lead to the deterioration of ecological environment and even pose a threat to the organisms through the food chain.

[CEST2019_00976] Mobilisation of Arsenic in groundwater, Lesvos Island, Greece
by Zkeri E., Aloypi M., Gaganis P.

In the present study, a geochemical analysis was conducted to investigate the As occurrence and release in groundwater from two different geological environments on Lesvos island: (i) the volcanic area of Mandamados (ignimbrite) and (ii) the metamorphic area of Tarti that comprises the geologic basement under ignimbrite. Seven sampling campaigns were conducted between October 2010 and October 2011 including 65 groundwater samples from 11 wells and springs. Chemical analyses showed As concentrations exceeding the 10 μg/L national drinking water limit in 46% of the samples from Mandamados.
