mixing-zone diagenesis in a carbonate aquifer, west-central florida.

Date Issued:

Abstract/Description:
mixing two waters of different chemical character produces a mixture that possesses degrees of saturation with respect to carbonate minerals different from those of either unmixed parent water. because of this, a salt-water/fresh-water mixing zone within carbonate rocks is an environment of active carbonate diagenesis. in order to evaluate digenetic changes generated by mixing-zone processes, the chemistry of groundwater samples collected from wells and springs within the mixing zone of coastal citrus county, florida, was analyzed, and the degree of saturation of the waters with respect to calcite and dolomite was determined.
