[AHW23-16] Groundwater chemistry in the Gunii Khooloi basin, Southern Gobi Region of Mongolia using multivariate analysis
Keywords:Groundwater chemistry, Principal component analysis, Southern Gobi Region of Mongolia
In this study, the hydrogeochemical approaches have been introduced to characterize hydrogeochemical characteristics and its associated recharge processes in the Gunii Khooloi basin. To investigate this hydrogeochemical study, springs, groundwater in shallow wells and deep wells in the study area were sampled twice (in September 2016, and in June 2017). A total of 95 groundwater samples were collected within these two years for major chemical analysis in order to understand the general hydrogeochemical conditions of the Gunii Khooloi basin.
Here, we will present the groundwater chemical properties and relationship between shallow and deep groundwater in the Gunii Khooloi basin clarified by multivariate statistical analysis, such as principal component analysis (PCA) and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA).
