Abstract

The Radovna River is a 19.4 km long river located in the north-western part of Slovenia, which runs almost entirely over the area of Triglav National Park. The bottom of the Valley is filled with fluvioglacial sediments, which represent an unconfined aquifer with karst aquifers in the recharge area consisting of carbonate rocks of the Triassic age. The Radovna River has only few short stream tributaries, which are recharged from the karstic springs. Therefore, the Radovna River is groundwater dominated river. Within this study, simultaneous measurements of discharge were performed. Discharge and electrical conductivity (EC) were shown to increase downstream. In low water conditions, the average increase in discharge was from 88 l/s km-1 to 287 l/s km-1.
