Ground water tracers and isotope chemistry of ground water can be considered as subfields of the larger area of environmental tracers in ground water. Environmental tracers are simply chemical or isotopic solutes that are found in ground water as a result of ambient conditions rather than the. Environmental applications are often in challenging indoor and field based environments that require rugged instruments that have long run times on battery power. For over 20 years we have been designing and building precision gas analysis instruments for rugged environments for applications such as.

Discussion of stable isotope geochemistry is generally limited to a specific scholarly paper or to cursory coverage in a larger geochemistry text. This is the first dedicated text to cover the basics of a wide range of stable isotope applications in a manner appropriate for someone entering the field. The discovery of stable ''isotopes" began with J. J. Thomson's identification of neon in (Bievre et al., ). More than 90 naturally occurring elements have been identified on the earth; they exist as nearly stable isotopes—that is, forms of the elements that do not decay or emit.

Isotope hydrology is a field of geochemistry and hydrology that uses naturally occurring stable and radioactive isotopic techniques to evaluate the age and origins of surface and groundwater and the processes within the atmospheric hydrologic cycle.

Isotope hydrology applications are highly diverse, and used for informing water-use policy, mapping aquifers, conserving water supplies, assessing. Modern isotope geochemistry is a rapidly expanding field that has a part to play in a broad range of earth and planetary sciences - from extra-solar system processes to environmental geoscience.
