Use of geochemical tracers has improved our conceptual and quantitative understanding of mountain system recharge (MSR) in the Upper San Pedro Basin, Arizona. These isotopic, major anion, and noble gas tracers resolved the location, rate and seasonality of recharge as well as groundwater flowpaths and residence times. Detectable anthropogenic C and tritium revealed less than 50 years residence times for the fast fraction of flow on the mountain block and in riparian areas. Maximum C residence… CONTINUE READING
