Noble gas isotopes ( He, He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe), tritium (H), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and dissolved oxygen (O 2) were seasonally measured in a small groundwater system recharged by infiltration of river water at Linsental, northeastern Switzerland. All Groundwater samples contained an excess of atmospheric noble gases (‘excess air’) usually with an elemental composition equal to air. The concentrations of atmospheric noble gases in the groundwater were used to calculate the excess air component… CONTINUE READING
