Advances in Isotope Hydrology and its Role in Sustainable Water Resources Management (IHS-2007)
Proceedings of a Symposium held in Vienna, 21-25 May 2007. Vol.2
Historically, the IAEA has played a key role in advancing isotope techniques and in promoting the use of isotopes to address water resource sustainability issues worldwide. The quadrennial IAEA symposia continue to be an important component of the IAEA's mission in water resources management. The 12th symposium in the series was convened with the objectives of: reviewing the state of the art in isotope hydrology; outlining recent developments in the application of isotope techniques to water resources management; and identifying future trends and developments for research and applications. The breadth of topics addressed was extensive and included analytical developments, the use of isotopes to understand land -atmosphere-biosphere interactions, rivers and surface water, development of deep groundwater resources, ecohydrology, urbanization and water resources management, carbon sequestration, waste management, artificial recharge, contamination problems, coastal zone hydrology, geothermal systems, agriculture and water resources management, and research frontiers. These proceedings are intended for those using isotopes for applied problems in hydrology as well as for the research community. It is also hoped that these proceedings will promote increased use of isotopes for water resource sustainability problems and greater utilization of these techniques by hydrologists in general.
