The use of chloride to estimate groundwater recharge in two catchment areas on the Guatemalan volcanic highland


Journal of Environmental Hydrology 1(1): 9-18
The use of chloride to estimate groundwater recharge in two catchment areas on the Guatemalan volcanic highland
Conventional hydrological techniques for estimating groundwater recharge are expensive and time consuming because they are based on the simultaneous estimation of many parameters that require long and different data records, a technical condition usually not sustainable in developing countries. This paper proposes a low-cost method for determining the replenishment coefficient by means of chloride content in groundwater and rainwater (hydrochemical solute technique).
