Sources of chloride and implications for 36Cl dating of old groundwater, southwestern Great Artesian Basin, Australia

Love, A; Herczeg, Andrew; Sampson, L; Cresswell, Richard; Fifield, L Keith


We investigate the relative importance of a number of processes that affect Cl and 36Cl distribution in the southwestern flow systems of the Great Artesian Basin, Australia, to provide more precise estimates of age and flow and recharge rates. In situ production of 36Cl, secular variations in the rate of production of 36Cl, and it's subsequent fallout as well as rates of diffusion of stable Cl from adjacent aquitards mask the interpretation of rates of decay of 36Cl/Cl along hydraulic gradients...[Show more]
