CONFORMITY OF GROUNDWATER RECHARGE RATE BY TRITIUM METHOD AND MATHEMATICAL MODELLING

Environmental tritium profiles studied over an interval of two years in a semi-arid region of western India (Gujarat) have been utilized to evaluate groundwater recharge to unconfined and confined aquifers. The recharge rate (11% of local rainfall) determined for confined aquifers for a part of the selected area using a diffusion-type unsteady groundwater flow model is in fair agreement with that determined using the tritium method. The tritium method wherever applicable has the advantages of being direct, fast, economical and does not require much hydrological data. /Author/
