Environmental isotope and nuclear techniques provide unmatched insights into the processes governing the water cycle and its variability. This monograph presents state of the art applications and new developments of isotopes in hydrology, environmental disciplines and climate change studies. Coverage ranges from the assessment of groundwater resources in terms of recharge and flow regime to studies of the past and present global environmental and climate changes.

From the reviews: "The book contains an historical overview chapter followed by 21 chapters divided amongst three sections. a ] The appendix, which lists key papers on isotope hydrology, is an interesting and valuable addition to the book. a ] This appendix lists some extremely important works. a ] those seeking a better understanding of modern isotope systems applied to lakes would do well to consult this book."
