The use of stable isotopes in investigations of hydrological processes and climate change
10 October 2016 - 13 October 2016
The course will be organized by Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) within the framework of GLOBAQUA and will introduce the basic principles behind isotopic and chemical tracer modeling. Of all the methods used to model hydrological processes in small watersheds, tracers (isotopic and chemical) have provided the best new insights into the age, origin and pathway of water movement. They are among the few truly integrated measures of watershed function. In addition the training will offer a set of methods and techniques for analysis and monitoring of climate change impacts on riverine systems. Training in field methods, sample preparation, and use of Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) will be included. The training course is design for researchers (master, doctoral and postdoctoral level) and other scientists interested in the use of stable isotopes and other tracers in hydrological studies.
