Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The hydrogeochemistry of the shallow groundwaters from Cristeşti has been described by means of hydrogeochemical diagrams (Piper, Durov) and through the analysis of the hydrogeochemical changes that occur from the terraces area, at the foot of which the first drilling was carried out towards the aquifers conduit discharge area (Prut river). Thus, the HCO 3 - - Na + waters, are projected within the CAD range (calcite – anhydrite – dolomite), whereas the SO 4 2- - Na + waters ”migrate” towards gypsum/anhydrite and dolomite, as the calculated saturation indexes prove. The indicator that presents exceeding values of MAC, in all the drillings, is CCOMn.
