Abass Gibrilla – Tracking Nitrate Sources in Groundwater
Groundwater is an important source of drinking water in Ghana. In this study Abass Gibrilla presents
a historical trend of nitrate contamination and a pioneering work on the use of integrated hydro-chemical and isotopic technique to trace the sources of nitrate contamination for a sustainable management of the groundwater resources.
Gibrilla Abass is a research scientist. He finished his education with a degree in Nuclear and Radiochemistry (Isotope Hydrology). His research interest is based on subsurface hydrology, isotope hydrology, water quality and hydrogeochemistry.
