Arsenic and fluoride in water in northwestern Buenos Aires: their association with natural landscape elements

Numerous publications analyze the origin of Arsenic and Fluoride, their behavior and distribution in groundwater indicating the importance in understanding the relation between their occurrence with other physical and chemical properties. Here, such properties associated with elements of the landscape in the plain of the Chaco-Pampean region are discussed. The landscape is represented by hills, lagoons and plains used for agricultural purposes. Water was sampled in mills, piezometers and lagoons following sections with different topographic elevation, soil type and vegetation in nine field campaigns from 2011 to 2013.
