Isotopic analysis of water (M. Paquette)

April 14, 2017 in post by Davesne.G

When all you need is a few millilitres. These 2 ml bottles are more than enough for measuring isotopic composition of water. This technique has many application, but in this case we are trying to figure out what percentage of the water flowing through the water tracks of Ward Hunt Island originate from snowmelt and how much from shallow groundwater. Even though we might suspect a lot of snowmelt, all bets are off really.
