Our research aims at the complex geochemical study of the solid phase of salt-affected profiles, originating from natural lakes and lakes under anthropogenic use. This paper presents the results of pH and clay mineral XRD analyses performed on sediment profiles taken from four sites, two of which operate as a hatchery. It has been proved that pH in saline areas is primarily determined by post-sedimentation processes, such as the water household, the salt content and the mineral composition of sediment.
