Tritium 3he dating of shallow groundwater

The T/3He ages were calculated for groundwater samples collected from the locations Wannsee and Lieper Bucht area, southwestern Berlin, Germany.

The calculated ages were used to study the infiltration of lake water into the groundwater system.

The increasing national and international demand for water has led to increasing reliance on subsurface storage, both for naturally and artificially recharged water.

A slight bias toward older apparent ages, found not to be statistically significant, was noted for the He-dating technique relative to the CFC-dating technique.This result may be caused by enrichment of local air in CFC-Il and CFC-12 from urban and industrial sources in the northeastern United States and minor contamination from sampling equipment.
