This new book discusses the hydrogeochemical dynamics of the Sava watershed, the main tributary of the Danube using stable isotope approach. Stable isotope measurements of oxygen and hydrogen (δ18O and δD) were used to characterize spatial and temporal variation in δ18O and δD values of the Sava and Danube and to preliminary estimate the mean residence time of runoff in the studied rivers catchments. Precipitation is of mixed Atlantic-Mediterranean origin which is also reflected in the isotopic composition of Sava surface waters. In addition in VF1 showed that Na and Cl- variables are strongly related to each other, not seasonally dependent and they contribute to the non-natural source contamination coming from the River Bosnia by Tuzla salt mine.
