Abstract

The solubilities of halite in Dead Sea waters and in their mixtures with Mediterranean Sea waters were estimated using Pitzer's equations. The calculated halite saturation for Dead Sea waters sampled at various occasions during 1979-1983 is in good agreement with the naturally observed phenomenon of halite deposition at this time. A halite saturation curve for mixtures of Dead Sea and Mediterranean Sea waters has been obtained and permits the prediction of halite deposition in these mixtures on evaporation.
