[HTT18-08] Study on groundwater flow system at Oshino Village in Yamanashi Prefecture – Report 5. Estimation of the residence time in spring water and groundwater at Oshino Village.
Keywords:Oshino Village, groundwater, water quality, stable isotopes, groundwater flow, residence time
The water samples for estimating the residence time by using the CFCs and SF6 have been collected at 2 spring water sites, 1 shallow groundwater site and 11 deep groundwater sites. For 3H analysis, water samples have been collected at 4 spring water sites and 4 deep groundwater sites. In this study, “shallow groundwater” is defined as several meters to some dozen meters depth, and “deep groundwater” is defined as about 100 m to 400 m depth.
As a result of analysis, the average residence time of spring water is about 10 to 26 years, shallow groundwater is about 30 to 40 years and deep groundwater is about 40 to 60 years. In addition, it is estimated that the average residence time of spring water which show the specific water quality (Na-SO4 type, δ18O and δD is relatively low) is more than 70 years. We will consider the relation between average residence time and water quality/ stable isotopes in future.
The continuous observation of water temperature and EC at 2 sites of Oshino Hakkai has been implemented since August, 2018. We will continue the field observation of Oshino village at 2019, and estimate the groundwater flow system and residence time more clearly.
