Chemical characteristics of water and soil samples in Lake Balkash basin

The concentration of major ions and their molar ratios are used to identify sources of the solutes and highlight their hydrochemical evolutions in surface waters. In order to analyze the spatial distribution characteristics and further explore the formation reason and environmental significance, major ions were measured in lake and river water samples collected in the Lake Balkash basin. Ca2+ and HCO3− were the dominant ions of river waters, and originated mainly from carbonate weathering. Lakes waters are of the Na-SO4 2− and Na-Cl- type, reflecting persistent, long-term evaporation under an arid climate.

Characteristics of Hydrochemistry in Lake Balkhash Catchment, Kazakhstan (2019)

In this study, major ions in water samples from the Lake Balkhash catchment were analyzed using an integration of mathematical statistics, Piper three-line map, Gibbs model and principal component analysis (PCA). Water types and main mechanisms controlling the hyrdochemistry presented a visible spatial heterogeneity. The chemical composition of lake waters was dominant with SO4-Na and Cl-Na, whereas river waters were classified as HCO3-Ca. The chemical composition downward the Ili River waters evolved from bicarbonate to sulfate and chlorination type. Gibbs model suggested that the main mechanisms control the lake water chemistry were evaporation-crystallization processes and major ions in river water were affected by the processes of rock-weathering and evaporation. The controlling factors in water chemistry changed from the upstream to downstream of the Ili River, which may be contributed to the lager impacts of precipitation and discharge of snow melting water on the upper waters, whereas more influence of evaporation on the lower waters. Furthermore, PCA analysis showed that human activities also play an important role in the chemical composition of lake water, middle and lower reaches of Ili River and other rivers.
