Thanks to exceedingly rare isotopes of krypton Kr and the innovative handiwork of researchers at the U. The results provide valuable information about the dynamics, flow rates and direction of water in aquifers, particularly those vital to arid regions. But now our goal is to make it part of the standard toolkit for hydrologists. Refinements to the ATTA technique used at Argonne are enabling the exploration of new isotopes for intermediate age ranges, as well as making this technology available, for the first time, to the Earth science community at large.

Our innovative, cutting edge techniques give by a large margin the highest accuracy and precision in tritium analysis . This high tritium precision allows for new understanding of processes in groundwater, oceans, and glaciers, such as. Our tracer data are used to understand and manage groundwater resources, and to understand how groundwater dynamics change over time. We welcome collaborative research and the opportunity to contribute or assist in research design.
Making the decision on which type of pure water you need for your application can be challenging. Knowing this informs the purification technology you use and systems you require to produce the right water grade. Type I grade water, also known as Ultrapure Water , is the purest form of water to be produced. This is quite a common practice that can help to avoid the generation of by-products during applications. It is a good feed water for clinical analyzers as the calcium build-up is reduced with this water type.
Our lab works with and accepts two types of samples for dissolved gas measurement: Copper Tube Samples and Diffusion Samples. Copper tubes are collected by pumping through an inline copper tube, and sealing the tube off using refrigeration type clamps. The dissolved gases in these samples is then extracted using our extraction line.
