Deciphering hydrological systems by means of geochemical processes

January 1, 1985

Interpretation of geochemical reactions and isotopic composition of groundwater provides a method to determine hydrological parameters such as porosity, hydraulic conductivity, and groundwater flow rates. This geochemical method is largely independent of the more conventional approach of determining these parameters by an evaluation of physical properties of aquifer systems. -from Authors
