Delta 18O and delta D systematics in the surficial waters of the Gaula river catchment area, Kumaun Himalaya, India


, : Delta 18O and delta D systematics in the surficial waters of the Gaula river catchment area, Kumaun Himalaya, India. Journal of Hydrology Amsterdam 167(1-4): 369-379

The delta 18O and delta D measurements of surface waters (streams, springs, lakes and precipitation) from the Gaula river catchment area of Kumaun Himalaya, India are reported. The delta D and delta 18O values are positively correlated, as has been the case with waters from several other regions. The lake waters are found to be enriched in 18O and D compared with the neighbouring regions due to evaporation. Estimates of mean total evaporation during the dry season range from 10 to 25%.
