Abstract : The feasibility of using spot tests coupled with ring oven separation for the monitoring of selected species in natural water sources was demonstrated. The species investigated and their concentration ranges were iron (0.1-10 ppm), lead (.05-1.0 ppm), magnesium (10-5000 ppm), zinc (1-20 ppm), chlorides (10-20,000 ppm), fluorides (0.1-10.0 ppm), nitrates (1.0-20 ppm), sulfates (10-3000 ppm), copper (0.1-5 ppm), calcium (20-10,000 ppm), cadmium (0.01-0.1 ppm), chromium (0.01-1 ppm), cyanide (0.1-5 ppm), manganese (0.02-2 ppm), and phosphate (0.02-2 ppm).
