Water chemistry and stable isotope data, Virkisjokull Glacier Observatory, 2011-2018

Stable isotope and inorganic chemistry data for samples of groundwater from boreholes and springs in the sandur aquifer; glacial meltwater and river water; and glacier ice, from Virkisjokull glacier observatory. Selected water chemistry and stable isotope data are reported in Ó Dochartaigh, B. É., et al. 2019. Groundwater?- glacier?meltwater interaction in proglacial aquifers, Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci. https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-2019-120

Data Quality

Data were generated by collecting water samples and carrying out field and laboratory analysis for selected parameters. Details of sampling and analysis methodology can be found in Ó Dochartaigh, B. É., et al. 2019. Groundwater - glacier meltwater interaction in proglacial aquifers, Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci. https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-2019-120.
