Abstract

Chemical and isotopic analyses of well discharges indicate that in the aquifer mixing occurs between shallow cold groundwater containing 2. 0 TU tritium and a deeper tritium-free thermal groundwaer at 100 to 120 degree C. This deeper water apparently results from the mixing of old, tritium-free cold groundwater and deep thermal groundwater at about 190 degree C and 120 mg/kg Cl. The temperature and chlorinity of the deep thermal water are based on SO//4-isotope and silica geothermometers and chloride and silica mixing models.
