Samples were vaccum filtered using a glass filtration apparatus and precom Samples were filtered in the field by vaccum fitration (polysulphone apparatus) and 0.22 μm PVDF membrane. The filtration unit was triple rinsed with DI water and sample for each sample. Two 25 ml polyethylene scintillation vials were filled for each sample. Samples were analysed for cations (Na+, K+, NH4+, Ca2+, and Mg2+) and anions (Cl-, Br-, NO2-, SO42-, NO3-, PO43-) by liquid ion chromatography with a Dionex ICS-3000. The ion chromatograph was equipped with an ASRS 300 suppressor and AS18 analytical column for anions, and a CSRS 300 suppressor and CS12A-5μm analytical column for cations. Concentrations are in ppm, n.a. indicates values below detection
