Leibundgut, Christian.



415 pages




Leibundgut (Institute of Hydrology, University of Freiburg, Germany) overviews the applications, benefits, and limitations using of natural and artificial tracers in hydrology and environmental research, in this work for students, scientists, and engineers. The book begins with a general overview, then covers environmental tracers such as stable isotopes in the soil and in water, and artificial tracers such as fluorescent and salt tracers. Other areas covered include mathematical modeling of experimental data, and technical aspects of planning and executing a tracer study. A final chapter presents real-life case studies in scenarios such as groundwater, surface water (including rivers and reservoirs), glaciers, surface-groundwater interaction. B&w photos and images are included.
