Abstract. Dissolved noble gases in groundwater are used to reconstruct paleotemperature, but also
yield information about "excess air", a component of dissolved gases in excess of solubility
equilibrium, derived from dissolution of trapped air in the ground. A good characterization of the
excess air component is necessary not only to obtain reliable noble gas temperatures, but also to
