Abstract

Gypsum solubility in mixtures of Dead Sea and Mediterranean Sea waters at different ratios and in their concentrates obtained by evaporation simulation have been calculated using the Pitzer model as formulated by Harvie and Weare (1980). The results obtained are compared with available experimental gypsum solubility data in different natural brines, sea water, sea water concentrates and NaCl solutions. The agreement between theoretically calculated and experimental solubility values is fairly good and is within the range of scatter of the individual solubility measurements.
