Abstract
In this study, an assessment of salinity gradient stability of an industrial solar pond during two operation seasons (2014 and 2105) is presented. An industrial solar pond was constructed to supply a low-temperature heat (up to 60¿°C) to achieve the temperature requirements of the flotation stage in a mineral processing plant (Solvay Minerales in Granada (Spain)). Along the first season, the salinity gradient was considered technically destroyed in April 2015 as the height to the upper convect...
