Hydrochemistry is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the chemical composition of water. An essential aspect of hydrogeochemistry is the identification of processes that influence water composition. Hydrochemical studies contribute significantly to monitoring and improving the water quality of ground and surface waters.
JR-AquaConSol GmbH also offers high-precision isotope analysis for questions in the fields of hydrology, geology, environment and medicine. Both mass spectrometric and laser-based methods are available for isotope investigations. An essential aspect of isotope analysis is the use of stable isotopes as tracers. Here, changes in the isotopic composition of water samples are used to better understand and quantify processes in the water cycle. Typical applications of water isotopes as tracers are the determination of the origin, mixing and residence time of waters in aquatic systems.
