Abstract

The healing properties of Bazna waters and their therapeutic indications have been well known since the 18(th) century. The objective of the present study was to characterize these waters from physical and biological points of view, and to further analyze the nitrogen compounds, especially NH4+. The following physical parameters of the water were analyzed: density (g/cm(3)), electric resistivity (Ω·m), electric conductivity (cm(-1)o(-1)), salinity, The pH analysis of the biological component was performed on samples from 4 basins. Nitrogen compounds were dosed in the form of ammonium ion (NH(4+)). The physical and chemical proprieties are similar across the basins. Flora and fauna biological components were identified. Ammonium ions were identified in large quantities, but this did not lead to hygienicaly unclean waters.
