PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES AND FLUORIDE CONTENT OF TERMITE MOUNDS AND THEIR ADJACENT SOILS AND THE GROUND WATERS OF THE PODILI AREA, PRAKASHAM DISTRICT, ANDHRA PRADESH, INDIAKS. REDDY, K.S.S. PRASAD AND A.N. RAJU
Physieo-chemical properties viz., pH, electrical conductivity and fluorine content of termite mounds and their adjacent soils and ground waters were studied in Podili area (endemic fluorosis) and non-fluorosis area (Triupati), for the purpose of comparison. These results have revealed that the termite mound is not only an indicator of the ground water but also serves as a tool to predict its fluoride content.
