[AHW18-03] Isotopic and chemical characteristics of well waters around Mt. Fuji
Keywords:Mt. Fuji, well water, hot spring water, stable isotope ratio (δD·δ18O), water quality
The δD and δ18O values of the water samples ranged from -86.4 to -49.6‰ and from –11.6 to -7.6‰, respectively, and negative correlation was recognized between isotope ratio and altitude of sampling point. Relationship between δD and δ18O for sample waters was δD = 8·δ18O + 12, and is very close to the local and global meteoric water lines (δD = 8·δ18O + 15.1 from Yasuhara et al., 2007 and δD = 8·δ18O + 10 from Craig, 1961, respectively). Altitude effect of δD and δ18O in sample waters (altitude of sampling point was used in calculation) were calculated at -3.5‰ and -0.43‰ per 100m altitude, respectively. These isotopic gradients are mostly the same as published values for rain and snow (-3.0‰/100m for δD and -0.4‰/100m for δ18O; Waseda and Nakai, 1983). Based on the trilinear diagram, water samples were basically classified as Ca–HCO3 type at shallow depths (0~15m depth), mixed cation–HCO3 type at intermediate depths (less than about 200m), Ca·Na–SO4·Cl and Na·Ca–SO4·HCO3 types or similar to them at more deep depth. Water qualities of deep wells appeared to be derived from submarine sediments and volcanic rocks which compose the basement of Mt. Fuji region because the water qualities of deep wells are similar to that of thermal water in the green tuff region of Japan (Sakai and Matsubaya, 1974).
