Research fields

Developing analytical and interpretational tools for helium isotopes (3He, 4He combined with the neon isotopes 20Ne, 21Ne, and 22Ne) in water and gas samples I came into touch with isotope hydrology as well as noble gas geochemistry. I did much work on groundwater dating particularly with noble gas isotopes and spread my methodical spectrum up to the isotopes of the water molecule (δ2Hwater and δ18Owater, 3H), the isotopes of nitrate and sulphate (δ15Nnitrate, δ18Onitrate, δ34Ssulphate, δ18Osulphate), to the isotopes of dissolved inorganic carbon (δ13CDIC, 14CDIC), and finally to 85Kr with following applications:

  • Dating “young”, “old”, and “very old” groundwaters for the evaluation of flow regimes
  • Detection and quantification of groundwater-surface water interaction
  • Anthropogenic contamination (diffuse and focussed) of groundwater
  • Age distribution of “young” groundwaters of karstified aquifers
  • Noble gases and seismicity
  • Development and application of isotopic tools for climate research
