Cosmogenic Tracers to Reveal the Sensitivity of Groundwater-Dependent Ecosystems to Changing Climate

Amanda Deinhart | 21-LW-071

Executive Summary

We will use Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's novel isotopic techniques based on cosmogenic age tracers to determine the sensitivity of groundwater-dependent ecosystems to changing climate. By pioneering the utility of these tracers to measure water resources, the project will provide improved data to guide water management decisions.
