Hydrogeochemistry of Isotopic Signatures of Ground Water and Acidulous Springs

    Project: Research area

    Description

    Carbonate ground water is generated by the uptake of CO2-gas and subsequent dissolution of lime stone. This is accompanied with characteristic fractionation mechanisms of stable carbon isotopes. In the case of acidulous springs in Northern Hessia (Germany) the presence of volcanic CO2 is displayed by the 13C/12C-composition of the dissolved carbonate.
