Abstract

Concentrations of calcium, magnesium, and carbon in inorganic compounds were measured in the groundwater crossing a shelterbelt. The differences among the concentrations of Ca, Mg, and C in inorganic compounds were attributed solely to the width of the shelterbelt. This bio­geo­chemical barrier efficiently decreased the concentrations of chemical substances: the fall in the dry mass was 30–75%, in Ca 20–54%, in Mg 46–72%, and in C in inorganic compounds 58–71%.

Keywords

shelterbelt, biogeochemical barrier, calcium, magnesium, carbon in inorganic compounds, groundwater.
