Distribution of manganese in the Soil-Water-Plant in the zone of Burshtyn Thermal Power Station
N. V. Dovganych
Thermal power stations have a multifaced and scale impact on natural biogeocenosis. This problem is of great actuality in the Precarpathia, where such most powerful enterprise as Burshtyn Thermal Power Station (BTPS) is the main polluter in all western region.
When researching technogenic impact of BTPS on local environment, there studied the amount of manganese in soil, water and celandine in the territory of its direct impact by atomic absorption spectrometry with inductively coupled argon plasma on analytic system “Plasmaquant 110” and by methods of mathematical statistics.
This study deals with the impact of BTPS on the amount of manganese in soil, water and celandine tissue. It was proved that emissions of BPTS change not only gross manganese amount, but also significantly break correlation between different manganese fractions in water and soil. Gross and changeable manganese amount in soil, water and celandine tissue are changeably interrelated and depend on the season, the distance from the polluter. Manganese distribution in celsndine tissues is organically specified, which is determined when a particular tissue is a part of the plant powering process and depends on the environmental possibilities where celandine grows.
