About this book

This updated and expanded edition provides a thorough understanding of the measurable properties of groundwater systems and the knowledge to apply hydrochemical, geological, isotopic, and dating approaches to their work. This volume Includes question and answer discussions for key concepts presented in the text and the basic hydrological, geological, and physical parameters to be observed and measured. Chemical and Isotopic Groundwater Hydrology, Third Edition covers the chemical tools of groundwater hydrology, the isotopic composition of water and groundwater dating by tritum, carbon-14, Cl-36, and He-4, as well as the application of fossil groundwater as a paleoclimatic indicator.


Introduction - chemical and isotopic aspects of hydrology; basic hydrological concepts; geological data; physical parameters; elements, isotopes, ions, units and errors; chemical parameters - data processing; planning hydrochemical studies; chemical parameters - field work; stable hydrogen and oxygen isotopes; tritium; radiocarbon and carbon-13; chlorine 36; noble gases; helium-4 as a tool for groundwater dating; interrelations between groundwater dating, paleoclimate and paleohydrology; detecting pollution sources; sustainable development of groundwater; groundwater aspects of urban and state-wide development planning and management; hydrochemist's reports.
