Isotopes of the Earth's Hydrosphere

Authors: Ferronsky, V.I., Polyakov, V.A.

  • Experimental data of isotopic composition of natural waters (oceanc, continental surface, subsurface, precipitation, atmospheric moisture) in global, regional and local scale
  • Isotopes of water in global scale demonstrates unity and interrelation of waters of all components of the hydrosphere or complete global water cycle
  • The stable and radioactive isotopes of water make it possible to understand the genesis, dynamics and residence time of water at present and in the past

About this book

This book covers the distribution, hydrochemistry and geophysics of the naturally occurring stable isotopes namely:  hydrogen, oxygen and radioactive tritium, carbon and other cosmogenic and radiogenic isotopes of the uranium-thorium series, in the oceans and in atmosphere, the earth's surface and ground water. The use of environmental isotopes in the three main areas of natural waters is discussed: origin, dynamics and residence time in natural reservoirs. The origin of the hydrosphere is examined in the light of isotopic, new cosmochemical and recent theoretical results.

The book will be of interest to scientists and researchers who use environmental isotopes in solving scientific and practical problems in hydrology, hydrogeology, oceanography, meteorology, hydrogeochemistry and cosmochemistry. Lecturers, students and postgraduates in these fields will also find it useful.
