Mineral and Thermal Waters of Southeastern Europe
This book brings together the latest findings on mineral and thermal waters from countries in Southeastern (SE) Europe (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Romania and Bulgaria). Each chapter is dedicated to the most recent geochemical and hydrogeological investigations for a specific country in SE Europe, helping readers to understand the origins and applications of mineral and thermal waters - aspects which are of great importance for the economic development of this region, as these waters are renewable resources, and have been gaining in popularity over the last few decades. Thanks to the region's favorable geological conditions, it is home to more than 6,000 sources of mineral and thermal waters, characterized by different physical properties and chemical compositions. Petar Papic is hydrochemist at the Department of Hydrogeology, Faculty of Mining and Geology at University of Belgrade, Serbia. He graduated at the Faculty of Chemistry and Physical Chemistry, University of Belgrade, and took MS and PhD in geology at Faculty of Mining and Geology, University of Belgrade, and specialization at UN University in Iceland. Since 2004 he teaches hydrochemistry, hydrogeochemistry, hydrogeoecology. His research interests include groundwater chemistry for groundwater exploitation in municipal water supply, mineral waters, geothermal energy, and environmental impact studies. He is involved in projects on radioactivity of groundwater in Serbia, hydrogeochemical atlas of groundwaters of Serbia and Protection of geological and biological environment as natural resources. He published more than 30 scientific articles. Petar Papic is a member of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH), International Association of Medical Geology, Serbian Geological Society and Serbian Chemical Society.
