In such direction, isotope technology has been emerged and established as an efficient scientific tool to combat the water related issues like ground water recharge studies, its quality management, surface water studies, salinization and contamination studies etc. Handbook of Environmental Isotope Geochemistry, Volume 2: The Terrestrial Environment, B focuses on the processes, methodologies, principles, and approaches involved in isotope geochemistry. The selection first elaborates on mathematical models for the interpretation of environmental radioisotopes in groundwater systems; isotopes in cloud physics; and environmental isotopes in lake studies. Isotope ratio differences in substances containing hydrogen (2 H/ 1 H, usually written D/H), carbon (13 C/ 12 C), nitrogen (15 N/ 14 N) oxygen (18 O/ 16 O), and sulfur (34 S/ 32 S) have been used or have potential use in studies of various aspects of lakes. We give here a general overview of the processes which bring about changes in stable isotope ratios, using studies of lakes as examples of their by: Isotopic Composition Stable Isotope Lake Water Lake Study Authigenic Carbonate.

During the first IAEA consultants meeting on "Isotope Techniques in Lake Investigations" held in in Vienna Headquarters, the major problems were summarised as three key-questions mainly concerning the state of the-art in lake balance and lake dynamics studies: (i) What is the input of isotope (tracers) in the system as a function of time?   This book highlights new and emerging uses of stable isotope analysis in a variety of ecological disciplines. While the use of natural abundance isotopes in ecological research is now relatively standard, new techniques and ways of interpreting patterns are developing rapidly.

Note that the dating of water by carbon or other radio-isotope methods is not included as direct dating of proxies provides much higher resolution. Water dating and allied information is extensively reviewed in books by Clark and Fritz () and Cook and Herczeg (). M.J. Leng (ed.), Isotopes in Palaeoenvironmental Research.

The use of stable-isotope ratios in palaeoclimate studies of lake sediments is based on the relationship between the 18O/16O (and 2H/1H) ratios in waters (precipitation, groundwater, rivers, streams and lakes) and climate, especially temperature. 18O/16O and 2H/1H ratios are referred to as delta values (ie. δ18O and δD see next Section).Cited by: 1.
