the sediments in each study area are not unusually high: the range for total As
observed in Bangladesh sediments is 0.4–15 mg kg 1 (Kinniburgh and Smedley,
2001), that for sediments from the Huhhot Basin is 3–29 mg kg 1 (Smedley et al.,

The present paper will report the characterization of arsenic-bearing sediments in
the Gangetic delta of West Bengal. We have analyzed 2235 borehole sediment
samples from 112 boreholes and 1 core boring from 6 out of 9 arsenic-affected ...
Arsenic-rich Selected Particles (S) from Borehole Sediments During our borehole
sediment analysis we had observed that usually in arsenic-rich parent sediment
samples some blackish, reddish or brown-colored particles, opaque, and soft or ...
THE REDOX DRIVER The lateral and vertical differences in arsenic
concentration in well water (Fig. 3; see also McArthur et al., 2001) do not arise
simply from variations in the abundance of arsenic in aquifer sediments, since
sediments in the ...
