Summary

This data release contains environmental tracer concentrations, modeled recharge conditions (water temperature, excess air), and resulting estimated groundwater residence times. This dataset supports an integrated hydrogeochemical investigation of solute sources, groundwater recharge processes, and groundwater flow in the Fountain Creek alluvial aquifer. Interpretation of the dataset is provided in Newman and others (2021). The data release contains five comma separated value (CSV) files. The CSV files contain the model inputs (gas and tracer concentrations) and the model outputs (simulated recharge temperature, excess air, apparent groundwater age, and mean groundwater residence time). Data were collected in cooperation with the [...]

Purpose

Data were collected to assist in understanding residence time distributions and potential sources of dissolved solutes in the alluvial aquifer. These data may be used to model recharge temperature and excess air, and to assess the age of groundwater at various spatial locations in the aquifer.
