Field trip to Pavlodar – HyperACTIV ORAU project. A week-length field trip to the Pavlodar-city has been realized within the ORAU “HYPER Activ” project funded by NU in August 2017.

Aug 25th, 2017

It was arranged to get an insight into a complexity of the mercury pollution of the north Pavlodar and a Lake-reservoir Balkyldak. Information about hydro-geological environment and evolution of mercury within the lake sediments are important to understand the variety and distribution of the mercury pollution sources within this area.  On the first part of this field the participants (dr. A. Korobeinyk, dr. S. Azat and PhD V. Yapiev) learned about the regional sources of pollution. Furthermore, area of lake boarders was gridded and then aqueous, solid, sediment and microbiological samples were collected for analysis.
