Thermodynamic modeling in solving some issues of inland saline ecosystems

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The purpose of this work was to show some examples of using thermodynamic modeling to understand quantitatively the water-rock interaction processes in salt lakes systems. The systems of small lakes located compactly are convenient to comparative modeling, because this permits minimization of the number of variables in the model (the climatic, geomorphological and geological specifics, water balance in the same watershed area). Nevertheless, it turns out that each lake is a relatively autonomous system (natural biogeocenosis, formed as a result of diagenesis). Due to the conjugate processes of biogenic and inorganic interactions, they are in a steady state, which has been fixed during the geochemical sampling in the field.
