Abstract

This project focus on the spring system during periods of turbulent flow. The researchers collected water samples of Maramec Spring on different days, at flood stage and normal situation. Also, they chose three different sites to make sure the result accurate. The particle analysis used X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, light scattering meter, and centrifuge. The water chemistry analysis methods including Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES), Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS), Mass Spectroscopy-Particle Analyzer (ICP-MS-PA).
