seems I am am bit archaic with my English. Content, composition, characteristics. 
Not required to be a detailed chemical analysis, a practical description like
mud, saltwater, freshwater, sulfuric water, mineral water. Possibly multivalued
with a list of the main minerals where notable.

Meanwhile I thought the same tag should be good to characterise the water quality of 
the oceans, the Dead sea, the Azov sea (if it still exists) and freshwater... would 
be a pitty not to have this.

So perhaps "water_characteristics" ?
