Estimating groundwater recharge on the southern slope of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
(Springer Nature Switzerland AG., 2019-12-03)
This paper used three methods namely: water-table fluctuation (WTF), soil moisture balance (SMB), and chloride mass balance (CMB) to estimate groundwater recharge in a degraded Kahe catchment located on the southern slope ...
Seasonal water chemistry variability in the Pangani River basin, Tanzania
The stable isotopes of δ18O, δ2H, and 87Sr/86Sr and dissolved major ions were used to assess spatial and seasonal water chemistry variability, chemical weathering, and hydrological cycle in the Pangani River Basin (PRB), ...
Assessment of sources and transformation of nitrate in groundwater on the slopes of Mount Meru, Tanzania
The stable isotope compositions of nitrogen-nitrate (15N-NO3) and oxygen-nitrate (18O-NO3), and concentration of nutrients (NO3- NH4+, NO2 -, PO4 3- ) for water samples collected from springs, shallow wells and boreholes ...
Occurrence of nitrate in Tanzanian groundwater aquifers: A review
(Springer Open, 2015-03-06)
More than 25 % of Tanzanian depends on groundwater as the main source of water for drinking, irrigation and industrial activities. The current trend of land use may lead to groundwater contamination and thus increasing ...
Evidence of climate change impacts on water, food and energy resources around Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
(Springer Nature Switzerland AG., 2019-11-08)
This review presents research evidence of climate change and anthropogenic impacts on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro and its implications on water, food and energy production (WFE nexus). While there exist divided scholarly ...
Hydrogeochemical characteristics and spatial distribution of groundwater quality in Arusha well fields, Northern Tanzania
Arusha aquifers have been exploited intensively serving as the main source of domestic water supply in the city. But the quality of groundwater is not clearly documented for future planning and management. Hydrogeochemical ...
