The water chemistry or hydrochemistry is the branch of hydrology which deals with the chemical substances occurring in natural water, and their interactions.
Main areas of work are the chemical characterization of the water (which is highly dependent on the regional and geochemical event units), the determination of water-chemical parameters and the assessment of anthropogenic and other influences on the water quality.
The water chemistry is closely linked with other disciplines, such as geochemistry, soil chemistry, environmental chemistry - but also atmospheric chemistry and others. The determination of water parameters is based on the methods of analytical chemistry.
