Before the full potential of natural tritium as a tracer for water movement in natural systems could be explored its distribution was masked by addition of large amounts of so-called ‘bomb tritium’ produced during the surface tests of nuclear weapons.These tests which were mainly performed in the early 1960s, led to an increase of tritium in precipitation over the continents of the northern hemisphere from roughly 5 TU to levels of the order of 1000 TU.Several conditions are necessary to permit solving the helium isotope mass balance for ), after correction for dilution with old (low tritium) water, should be consistent with possible tritium-age relations for surface water or meteoric infiltration water of that age (see for example Figure 14 in Dunkle and others, 1993; Figure 7 in Ekwurzel and others, 1994; and Figure 7 in Plummer and others, 2000). If the atoms of H, or 3.24 picocuries per liter, p Ci/L. Additionally, location of the mid-1960s bomb peak provides information on recharge rate (Schlosser and others, 1988, 1989; Solomon and Sudicky, 1991; Solomon and others, 1992, 1993; Ekwurzel and others, 1994).
Whereas the addition of bomb tritium to the environment practically eliminated the use of natural tritium as a tracer, it offered a new tool, i.e., the use of the bomb tritium peak (Fig.
As a low energy beta emitter with a half-life of about 12 years, it is not dangerous externally because its beta particles are unable to penetrate the skin.
However, it is a radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin.
Our tracer data are used to understand and manage groundwater resources, and to understand how groundwater dynamics change over time.
We welcome collaborative research and the opportunity to contribute or assist in research design.
