Stream & groundwater responses to episodic recharge: Integrating time-series analysis & environmental tracers

Duvert, Clement (2016) Stream & groundwater responses to episodic recharge: Integrating time-series analysis & environmental tracers. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This dissertation examines the hydrological response of aquifers and streams subjected to highly episodic recharge. Based on high-resolution measurements of a range of novel hydrochemical and isotopic tracers, it is demonstrated that (i) inter-aquifer mixing can be triggered by major recharge events and (ii) the transit time of the groundwater contribution to streams varies considerably with varying recharge rates. These findings suggest that stream–aquifer and inter-aquifer interactions are highly preferential both spatially and temporally, with important implications for the conceptualisation of hydrological processes in complex geological settings.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
