Environmental Isotope Data No. 10 World Survey of Isotope Concentration in Precipitation (1988–1991)

Technical Reports Series No. 371

English STI/DOC/010/371 ¦ 92-0-102094-5

214 pages ¦ 2 figures ¦ € 49.50 ¦ Date published: 1994


This is the tenth and latest volume in the present series. It is mainly concerned with the concentration of the environmental isotopes (tritium, deuterium and oxygen-18) in monthly samples of precipitation taken by a global network of 169 stations in the period 1988-1991. Selected meteorological data, such as the amount of precipitation, mean water vapour pressure and surface air temperature, are also presented. Data before 1988 which were unavailable at the time of the earlier issues have also been included in the latter part of this volume as late reports. The great majority of the data comes from the IAEA/WMO Isotopes-in-Precipitation Network, which was set up by the IAEA in co-operation with WMO and seven national laboratories. The collection of the precipitation samples is carried out by the meteorological services in 45 countries and territories. Analyses of the network samples are made in co-operating laboratories, a full list of which is given at the end of this publication. Contents: Introduction; Data printouts; Numerical station index; Alphabetical station index; Appendix 1: Laboratories which have co-operated or are co-operating in the IAEA/WMO network; Tritium laboratories; Stable isotopes laboratories.
