CGU-HS Committee on Isotope Tracers

last updated May 2006


Progress on Objectives

A significant milestone for the Isotope Tracer Committee was met with the publication of the paper "Progress in Isotope Tracer Hydrology in Canada" in Hydrological Processes this year (vol 19, 303-327, PDF). This paper presents an overview of current research in isotope hydrology, focusing on recent Canadian contributions under the following headings: precipitation networks, hydrograph separation and groundwater studies, river basin hydrology, lake and catchment water balance, and isotope palaeohydrology from lake sediment records.
