10) In geothermal areas, further impacts on groundwaters and surface are frequently observed [188, 241, 243]. 1) and (ii) desorption of arsenic by elevation of pH or competitive sorption processes. Aquifers impacted by desorbed arsenic under nonreducing conditions are wide­ spread with notable examples in Argentina, the United States, Spain, and China (Datong Basin) among other places [201]. The pH of such waters is often strongly alkaline and arsenic concentrations may reach as high as a 5000 µg/L in association with elevated concentrations of other chemicals, notably F, B, V, and U [218].

5. Competing anions, notably phosphate [12], have been proposed as being of importance to controlling arsenic mobility, as has passivating polymerized silica [225] and organics. Although carbonate sorption has been proposed to be significant [112], recent experimentation [33] suggests generally otherwise. 3 ARSENIC DISTRIBUTION IN ROCKS Arsenic occurs ubiquitously in most rocks at concentrations in the range of 1–10 µg/g. Notable enrichments may also be found in loess, glacial tills, and peats, but most ­commonly in acid sulfate soils (up to 50 µg/g), shales (up to 200 µg/g), and rocks in certain mining districts (up to 10,000s µg/g) [219].
