Hydrogeochemical and isotopic controls on the source of fluoride in groundwater within the Vea catchment, northeastern Ghana
Highlights Fluoride is dominant in K-feldspar-rich granitoid and hornblende-biotite granitoid. Almost 61% of the samples from the Vea catchment are contaminated with fluoride. Groundwater is supersaturated with respect to albite due to silicate weathering. Silicate weathering, ion exchange, and alkaline pH control fluoride enrichment. Stable isotopes indicate meteoric origin with an evaporative effect for groundwater. […]Ghana
