B012. Chemical Indicators of Pathways in the Water Cycle


Global change is altering the pathways water follows between and within

the atmosphere, shallow lithosphere, and land surface. Understanding the

structure of these inherently spatial fluxes is critical to predicting

impacts and feedbacks of global change. As new technologies and monitoring

networks enhance spatiotemporal hydrochemical data streams (e.g., isotopic

and solute measurements) these provide increasingly powerful tools to

probe current pathways in the water cycle and to detect change therein. We

invite contributions reporting novel applications of natural chemical

tracers to detect spatial and temporal structure in the water cycle,

including atmospheric, land surface, groundwater, and ecohydrological

processes at any scale.
