Kinetics and Thermodynamics of Chemical Evolution in Ground-Water Systems

Summary

The responsible use of our Nation's ground-water resources requires an ability to predict changes in water quality as a result of human impacts. Prediction of chemical quality in the ground-water environment depends on a detailed understanding of both chemical and hydrologic processes. To determine the spatial and temporal variability of ground-water quality, it is necessary to identify reactions occurring in the system, to define their kinetic and thermodynamic properties, and to determine how the configuration of the hydrologic regime influences ground-water quality. The objectives of this project are to: (1) identify chemical reactions in ground-water systems using observed chemical and isotopic composition of dissolved solutes [...]
