H016: A Second Generation of Isotopic, Trace Element and Noble Gas Tracers of Hydrologic Processes

Session description: Stable, radioactive and radiogenic isotopes, trace elements and noble gases are routinely utilized within the hydrologic sciences to quantify subsurface flow paths, sources, residence times and reactive processes.  The last decade has seen transformative advancements in analytical technology, including resolution of novel mid-mass stable isotope systems, rapid and low-cost radioisotope analysis, as well as the decay of previously abundant atmospheric tracers.  These developments necessitate revised experimental design, interpretation, analysis, and modeling approaches, and suggest the potential for new more accurate resolution of the structure of fluid transport and solute transformation across a broad range of scales.  This session is the second year in which we offer a venue to share new insights into the linkages between surface and subsurface hydrology, ecohydrology, environmental and resource sustainability, nutrient and contaminant hydrology and associated predictive models stemming from novel isotopic, trace element and noble gas tracers in field systems, laboratory experiments and models.
