[BCG09-P06] Distribution of arsenic and uranium between lake waters and sediments in saline lakes in Southern Mongolia.
Keywords:Saline lakes, mongolia, arsenic, uranium
The toxic elements distribution between the sediments and lake water are essential for the understandings of the enrichment processes and the mobility of toxic species in surrounding environments. In present study, we investigated the distribution processes of arsenic and uranium by analyzing the lake waters, suspended matters and sediments in saline lakes (Olgoi Lake, Boon Tsagaan Lake and Orog Lake) in Southern Mongolia.
