History and present status of field application of radiotracers, 3

Journal Article:

Abstract

The history and present status of the utilization of RI tracers for hydrology are described by dividing into surface water and groundwater. By the birth of nuclear reactors, the availability of RIs became easy, and the utilization of tracers for hydrology has been attempted worldwide. The large scale development of water resources is required for increasing agricultural production, and the analysis of the actual condition of hydrological phenomena is indispensable for the purpose. The hydrology committee of IAEA aided the development of new techniques in the peaceful use of atomic energy, and let developing countries use the developed techniques together with researchers. The research on the field application of RI tracers in Japan began in agriculture, and the investigation of water leak in dams, the measurement of flow rate and flow velocity in rivers, the detection of the state of sand movement on sea bottom, the analysis of groundwater flow and so on have been carried out. Also the recent situation in foreign countries is reported about the measurement of flow rate, the measurement of flowing-down time and diffusion, the analysis of the behavior of lake water, the movement of mud and sediment, and the analysis of groundwater flow.
