TRACE ELEMENT GEOCHEMISTRY OF THERMAL WATER PERCOLATING THROUGH A KARSTIC ENVIRONMENT IN THE REGION OF ST. GHISLAIN, BELGIUM
Water percolates in the elevated area to the east of St. Ghislain, becomes heated in depth and moves upward through fissures. Major and trace elements analysis of this geothermal water shows its connection with the water bearing structure (sedimentary environment). Differences in chemical composition of the thermal waters can be attributed to differences in lithological facies in the aquifer.
