Geochem Trans. 2016 Jul 11;17:4. Sources of salinity and arsenic in groundwater in southwest Bangladesh.

The average salinity of groundwater in the area of Polder 32 is ~10 ppt, roughly 1/3 that of seawater and similar to the salinity of tidal channel water in the dry season. We suggest that groundwater in this region is saline because it comprises connate tidal-channel water deposited with the sediments during Holocene aquifer development, similar to what is observed today. The concentrations of components of soluble salts such as the alkali element Na, alkaline earths Mg and Sr and halogen Cl are all highly correlated, indicating that they behave conservatively.

Groundwater samples define linear arrays on bivariate plots of these elements that most likely represent mixing between saline and dilute endmembers (Fig. 5). tgw=ln(XCWe−λtCw+(1−XCW))−λ CgwCl= XswCswCl+(1−Xsw)CrwCl Source of As and cause of As mobility CH2O + 4FeOOH−(H2AsO4)x+(7+ 3x)H+= 4Fe2++ HCO−3+(6+ x)H2O + xH3AsO3.

Khalid Khan Teaching elementary schoolers to drink from safe water wells becomes a lesson the whole family learns, according to an NIH-funded study. By Shana Potash​ A mother in rural Bangladesh goes about her task of collecting household water from a well outside her home. She may not know the water contains high levels of arsenic, or that using a different well could be lifesaving. Arsenic is naturally occurring and can leach into groundwater from rocks and soil. Installing new, safe wells in a community doesn't necessarily mean people will use them, researchers say. Investigator Dr. "The idea was the children would get information in the earliest stages of their life," Khan explains, "It could basically save them for their entire life, and their families also could benefit.

" Fourteen schools and roughly 800 children, ages 8 to 11, participated in the study. The findings come as investigators are learning more about arsenic's effect on children.

Une pollution découverte dès 1993, mais peu de choses ont changé depuis, selon Human Rights Watch. L'association estime à 43.000 le nombre annuel de décès dus à cette pollution. Un rapport de Human Rights Watch publié mercredi 6 avril 2016 met en lumière la contamination à l'arsenic d'une grande partie de la population du Bengladesh. Ce fléau provoquerait 43.000 décès par an. 20 millions de Bangladais seraient ainsi contaminés par la consommation de l'eau de leurs puits. L'arsenic provoque diabète, cancers de la peau, des poumons, du foie, de la vessie ou du pancréas, des maladies pulmonaires, cardiovasculaires et pulmonaires.

Les normes internationales de concentration d'arsenic dans l'eau recommandent de ne pas dépasser 10 milligrammes par litre d'eau. 125.000 puits analysés L'arsenic est un métal présent à l'état naturel dans l'Himalaya.
