By Walter Geller,Helmut Klapper,Wim Salomons

Acidification is a common challenge in any respect mining websites within which oxygenated water is available in touch with sulfide minerals or different diminished sulfur compounds. a global Workshop was once held in September 1995 on the division for Inland Water study of the UFZ-Centre for Environmental learn in Magdeburg at the limnology of lakes created by means of open-cast lignite mining, emphasizing the customarily saw geogenic acidification after oxidation of pyrite. the quantity has 25 chapters together with a bankruptcy with result of staff discussions concerning the issues pointed out above and additional difficulties that have been pointed out in the course of the assembly. The monograph offers a baseline of the nation of technological know-how at the all over the world challenge of geogenic acidification of lakes following human mining activities.
