Use & Application Of Oxygen Isotopes In Ground Water Studies

Use & Application Of Oxygen Isotopes In Ground Water Studies Introduction Naturally occurring oxygen is composed of three stable isotopes 16O, 17O, and 18O. 16O being the most abundant (99.762% natural abundance) Known oxygen isotopes range in mass number from 12 to 24. 16O is a primary isotope while 17O and 18O are secondary isotopes Stable oxygen is used in ground water studies to investigate… Read More »
