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 world Workshop was once held in September 1995 on the division for Inland Water study of the UFZ-Centre for Environmental study 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 workforce discussions in regards to the issues pointed out above and extra difficulties that have been pointed out in the course of the assembly. The monograph provides a baseline of the kingdom of technology at the all over the world challenge of geogenic acidification of lakes following human mining activities.
