Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology by Peter G. Cook, Andrew L. Herczeg

By Peter G. Cook, Andrew L. Herczeg

Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology synthesizes the study of experts right into a accomplished assessment of the applying of environmental tracers to the research of soil water and groundwater circulation. The e-book comprises chapters which hide ionic tracers, noble gases, chlorofluorocarbons, tritium, chlorine-36, oxygen-18, deuterium, and isotopes of carbon, strontium, sulphur and nitrogen. purposes of the tracers comprise the estimation of vertical and horizontal groundwater velocities, groundwater recharge premiums, inter-aquifer leakage and combining techniques, chemical methods and palaeohydrology. working towards hydrologists, soil physicists and hydrology professors and scholars will locate the ebook to be a worthwhile help of their work.
