Have you ever wondered how long it takes a drop of rain to reach a river? In this #CWNSYP webinar, learn how naturally-occurring heavy and light types of water (isotopes) help water scientists track water as it flushes through shallow soils, streams and deeper groundwater aquifers. Learn how scientists discover how “old” water is, and why understanding how long it takes a raindrop to reach a river matters for the quality and supply of our water resources.
