Key to sustainable management of water resources is having the knowledge needed to make the right decisions. Isotope hydrology is a nuclear technique that uses both stable and radioactive environmental isotopes to trace the movements of water in the hydrological cycle.

Isotopes can be used to investigate underground sources of water to. For developing policies towards sustainable management of freshwater resources, an improved understanding of the Earth’s water cycle bas been widely recognized as one of the key elements of scientific IAEA has played a crucial role in promoting and expanding the field of isotope hydrology.

management of freshwater resources. Over the last 50 years, environmental isotope techniques have provided insights into the processes governing the water cycle and its variability under past and present climatic conditions. Increasingly, isotope techniques are being integrated into water resources management practices.

The established network of national institutions will contribute to better characterization, management and monitoring of groundwater resources using isotope hydrology and conventional techniques. This article was featured in the April Bulletin edition on Water. Introduction.

Water is one of the important natural resources for sustaining the life. The demand of fresh water has amplified manifold. Besides, climate change generally affects the water resources through changes in levels and distribution of snowfall, rainfall by the increase in air and water temperature and finally affects the ground water sources [1, 2].

This strategy acknowledges the key to sustainable management of water resources which is the knowledge needed to make the right decisions.

The good news is that Isotope hydrology is a nuclear technique that uses both stable and radioactive environmental isotopes to trace the movements of water in the hydrological cycle.

Hydrology Laboratory, BARC Mumbai have successfully applied isotope techniques for investigating and solving problems related to water resources management in collaboration with a number of end user organisations including state and central water authorities.

Some of the recently carried out isotope hydrological investigations are presented Size: KB. This Section implements all activities of the IAEA's Water Resources Programme, which promotes and transfers know-how on the use of isotope hydrology as an effective tool for water resources assessment and sustainable water management.

It also provides assistance and training on analytical services via its Isotope Hydrology Laboratory. To improve the understanding of water related issues and problems using isotope techniques for sustainable development To collaborate and interact with national and international agencies/institutions in advanced research in isotope To create awareness and impart training to personnel from.

Managing water resources using isotope hydrology. Of all the water on Earth, only per cent is freshwater, the rest is salty. Of this freshwater, most is frozen in icecaps present as soil moisture, or inaccessible in deep underground aquifers, leaving less than 1 per cent accessible for use.

Isotope Hydrology Book Summary: Within the realm of the newly evolving discipline of environmental sciences, the stable-isotope methodology is being used to an ever-increasing extent, especially in the study of the water cycle and of paleo-climatology.

This book introduces the rules of the game, by reviewing the natural variability of stable isotopes in the hydrosphere, describing the physico-chemical. The Use of ISOTOPES in Groundwater Hydrology: As geochemical tools, stable and radioactive environmental isotopes such as 2 H, 3 H, 14 C, and 18 O can provide information on the physical and chemical processes operating on groundwater, on the hydrogeological characteristics of aquifers including origin, time, and rate of recharge, and on.

About this book Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume This Monograph consists of a series of papers that were presented at a Symposium on Isotopes in the Hydrologic Cycle held on the University of Illinois campus on November 10–12,for which the Illinois State Water Survey.

The main aim of this book is to provide a review of basic theoretical concepts and principles of isotope hydrology methodologies and their practical applications to the researchers, field engineers, managers and academicians involved in research, development, academic work and management in hydrology and water resources.

This book contains the lecture notes by eminent Isotope Hydrologists of : Paperback. The concentration ratios of the stable isotopes in water (2 H/ 1 H, 18 O/ 16 O) vary, depending on the source of the water and natural processes, such as evaporation and condensation.

The radioactive isotopes 3 H and 14 C may provide indications - depending on natural conditions - of the source of water and the age, i.e. the time elapsed since.Each year, on 22 March, World Water Day focuses public attention on the value of water and the importance of access.

The IAEA promotes the use of isotope hydrology, allowing national experts to identify and assess the availability of groundwater resources; isotope tracers provide essential data about the origins and behaviour of pollutants; and the scientific databases.Learning objectives.

Graduates who have undertaken the Hydrology and Water Resources specialization will be equipped with: An in-depth understanding of theories and concepts in surface and subsurface hydrology, the physical, chemical and biological interactions between the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, the biosphere and the atmosphere.
