In situ fractionation and redox speciation of As in three different saline-alkaline lakes (green, black and crystalline lakes) in the Pantanal of Nhecolandia (Brazil) were performed by using Diffusive Gradients in Thin films (DGT). The results indicated that As is present mainly in dissolved form. Total As concentration was similar when using different filter membranes, demonstrating that the species adsorbed by DGT devices were <10 kDa. Higher concentrations of labile total As were observed in the center of the lakes, indicating that the nature of the organic matter influences the formation of As complexes. Total As concentrations determined by using ZrO2 DGT were consistent with As concentration in ultrafiltered water samples collected in the black lake. However, part of the data about As(III) obtained in grab samples contrasted with DGT results. The differences observed may indicate that alterations in the species occur during the storage period before analysis by ultrafiltration. As(III) concentrations measured by DGT in the black and crystalline lakes were 1-3 mu g L(-1)and 4-7 mu g L-1, respectively, accounting for only 4%-8% of the total DGT inorganic As. In the green lake, As(III) concentrations were significantly higher at the center (217 mu g L-1). Both the phytoplankton community and the dissolved organic carbon influence the As speciation and bioavailability in the lakes of Nhecolandia. The DGT approach used in the present work was able to perform As speciation and demonstrates that in situ sampling analytical techniques are essential in understanding As speciation and its behavior in complex natural aquatic systems.
