Hydrological implications of stable isotope determinants in U.K. waters

Subtitle:
(with special reference to the Malham area, North Yorkshire, and the Lambourn area, Berkshire)
Abstract:

The stable isotopes of oxygen and hydrogen have been employed worldwide as natural hydrological tracers, and most successfully in areas where extremes of climatic seasonality or relief exist. This project aims to assess the viability of the stable isotope technique for studies in the U.K.

Systematic sampling was undertaken over two years in the Malham (Carboniferous limestone) and Lambourn (Chalk) areas. The monthly isotopic input signal in precipitation was found to be clearly defi...
