Effects of The Groundwater Hypothetical Salts on Electrical Conductivity and Total Dissolved Solids

S.A.J.M Al-Dahhan


The Electrical conductivity [EC] relationship to total dissolved solids TDS were investigated for solutions of same salinity levels with respect to different prime hypothetical salts and their combinations.

The obtained results show remarkable jump in the order of the hypothetical salt sequence and specially that of the magnesium type.

A computer model is then built with an input of EC and TDS. The output will be the possible prevailing hypothetical salts. The accuracy of the model were tested (using groundwater data of Safwan-Zubair -S. Iraq)and its proved to be significant at 95% matching. The 5% unmatched results is due to possible of more than one type of prevailing salt.
