Widespread Elevated Atmospheric SF6 Mixing Ratios in the Northeastern United States: Implications for Groundwater Dating

Posted on January 01, 2008 by Nicholas Santella

Journal of Hydrology – January 2008 Elevated levels of SF6 near urban areas were quantified based on concentrations in soil air. This article discusses how observed concentrations in the North East US can lead to significant errors in predicted groundwater age if elevated atmospheric concentrations are not accounted for.

Seasonal Variability and Long Term Trends of Chlorofluorocarbon Mixing Ratios in the Unsaturated Zone

Posted on June 01, 2006 by Nicholas Santella

Environmental Science & Technology – June 2006 CFC concentrations in soil air were monitored over several seasonal cycles. Variability in gas phase concentrations was observed due to changes in soil temperate, moisture and temperature dependence of solubility and soil/water partitioning.
