Abstract

Recent studies of dilute (low-ionic-strength) lakes, streams and groundwaters in the northeastern United States, southern Norway and Sweden have shown that acidic deposition readily mobilizes aluminum from soil to the aquatic environment. Although this fact is well documented, detailed investigations of aqueous aluminum chemistry in natural acidified waters are limited. The intent of this investigation was to describe alumino-ligand interactions in acidic aquatic ecosystems. To achieve this end, water quality data were collected from several acidic lakes and streams in the Adirondack Mountain region of New York state. These data together with chemical equilibrium calculations were used to assess the distribution of dissolved aluminum species in these waters.
