Lake Rotorua groundwater study: results of the 2004-2005 field programme (July 2005)

R Reeves, P A White, S G Cameron, G Kilgour, U Morgenstern, C Daughney, W Esler, S Grant, Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences Limited

Report commissioned by Bay of Plenty Regional Council to collect new geological, hydrological, water quality and water dating data to develop groundwater models of the Lake Rotorua catchment.

Using groundwater age and hydrochemistry to understand sources and dynamics of nutrient contamination through the catchment into Lake Rotorua, New Zealand (February 2015)

U Morgenstern, C J Daughney, G Leonard, D Gordon, F M Donath, R Reeves

This study shows how the isotopic and chemistry signature of groundwater can be used to help determine the sources and the dynamics of groundwater and contaminants that travel with it, in particular in complex groundwater systems that are difficult to characterize using conventional hydrogeologic methods, such as that of the Lake Rotorua catchment.
