Ne is an inert, soluble, gas which is present in air and has been used in international studies to understand recharge conditions. The aim of establishing a sampling and analysis technique for Ne is two-fold: (i) enable the quantification of excess nitrogen in the groundwater and thus, denitrification, and (ii) improve groundwater dating via gas tracers by providing the correct recharge temperature and excess air to obtain more robust age tracer concentrations.

Funding

Funded by the New Zealand Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment's Our Land and Water National Science Challenge (Toitū te Whenua, Toiora te Wai) as part of project Measuring Denitrification
