Major ion and trace elements chemistry of fifty-eight water samples of southern part of Western Siberia (Russia) were analysed with a suite of statistical techniques (using R programming language), in an effort to explain the key processes affecting chemical composition of saline lakes. The database included data about well, river, and lake waters and groundwater. According to performed cluster analysis of chemical data, all lakes in the area can be divided in to 5 main groups and their chemical composition very similar to rivers and deep groundwater. Shallow groundwaters are more enriched in Ca2+ and Mg2+. Principal component analysis (PCA) identified four main principal components, with the first principal component (PC1) accounting for 44.3% and representing the process of salinization, and PC2 and PC3 (17.9 and 8.6% of total variance) controlled by water-rock interaction process of carbonates/sulphates precipitation and aluminosilicates formation.
