|... are environmental isotopes?
|Environmental isotopes of an element are part of the natural environment and are non-radioactive. They are ideal for use as fingerprinting tracers. Since they are already present in the system they are not added to the environment.
|... would you use environmental isotopes?
The identification of fluid sources and pathways is often aided by the use of environmental isotopes. For
example, waters from different areas may contain different isotopic fingerprints allowing the identification
of the source.
Sulphur isotopes are particularly useful for fingerprinting of sulphur containing contaminants.
