AbstractHigh concentrations of Vanadium have been measured in the groundwaters of the volcanic island of El Hierro. Values ranging from 19.4 to 288 μg/L are much higher than those generally found in natural water samples (< 1 μg/L). Such increased contents mainly derive from the water-rock interaction processes within the aquifer formed by Vanadium-rich basaltic rocks. The mobility of Vanadium in these groundwaters is further enhanced by their oxidizing and alkaline conditions. Possible consequences on human health due to the consumption of these V-rich waters should be investigated.
