"Potential of solid phase formation from thermal water in the region of Velingrad.";
Geologica Balcanica, 46 (2017), 2; S. 135 - 141.

The Velingrad geothermal field is one of the largest in Bulgaria. Its water is widely used for balneology, spa tourism, sports, heating and other purposes. An interesting problem related with the operation of thermal water is the process of scaling or corrosion of equipment when the water passes through it. Specifically, for the geothermal field, a saturation index is used to assess whether the water is saturated or unsaturated, with regard to the respective mineral phase. The obtained results for this coefficient are compared with those for the existing water sources from the geothermal field and, depending on the location, temperature and other physicochemical differences, their variation is analyzed.
