Groundwater dating and residence time measurements
This water begins as rainfall or surface water that travelled from the surface to below the ground to become stored in porous soils and rock known as aquifers.In research that commenced in 2007, Meredith and co-investigators have measured the isotopic signatures of groundwater and its source waters in projects in the Great Artesian Basin, Darling River Basin, Canning Basin, Perth Basin, Ti Tree Basin and other locations.Instituto Volcanológico de Canarias, INVOLCAN (Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) A postdoctoral position in hydrogeochemistry is available at the Instituto Volcanológico de Canarias, INVOLCAN (Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) with the start date as soon as possible. The successful candidates will mainly conduct hydrogeochemistry research activities in oceanic volcanic islands as well as consult with and train foreign counterparts.We are looking for a motivated researcher with interest in experimental (lab and/or field) research related to salinization of coastal volcanic aquifers, magmatic-hydrothermal system/groundwater interaction, ground water dating and residence-time measurements in volcanic islands, and submarine ground water discharge.

The ratio of isotopes for oxygen (Simplified depiction of how the source of groundwater recharge can be identified using isotopic ratios. Red line is soil water and blue line is flood water. Meredith and co-investigators have established multi-year hydrochemical databases for rainfall and riverwaters sampled from drought and flood conditions for many catchment areas in Australia.
