Seasonal variability of Crvena river water mineralization
Manojlović Predrag, Nikolić Milena, Mustafić Sanja, Luković Jelena
The mineralization of water and its content in Crvena River so far have not
been studied. Water sampling was conducted from April 2008 - May 2009. Total
mineralization is relatively low, which is consistent with the dominant
lithological structure (Permian red sandstone). Dry residue contains Ca2+
ion, with the increased participation of SiO2. During the observational
period it is clearly expressed seasonal effect. It is reflected not in the
direct but the indirect impact. Based on the ratio of individual ions a model
is determined for estimation of water flow at the confluence of the Crvena
River in Nisava River. It could be applied to other drainage basins that have
not been studied so far.
