To protect our water resources and the environment and support possible remediation efforts, it is important to have reliable scientific information on the impact of pollutants on surface and ground water. Isotope tracers provide critical data about the origins and behaviour of pollutants in the water cycle.

  • Agricultural Water Management

    Agricultural water management

    Approximately 70 per cent of global freshwater consumption is used in the agricultural sector, yet water use efficiency in many countries is below 50 per cent. Nuclear and isotopic techniques provide data on water use including losses through soil evaporation and help optimize irrigation scheduling and improve water use efficiency. Read more →

  • Allocation of water

    Assessing the sustainable allocation of water resources, whether above or below ground, requires sound scientific knowledge of water availability and quality. Isotopic methods can help provide the necessary information to effectively and efficiently manage these resources. Read more →
