Abstract

Relative stable isotopic ratios for hydrogen and oxygen compared to standard mean ocean water are presented for water from 4 surface-water sites and 38 ground-water sites on or near the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL). The surface-water samples were collected monthly from March 1991 through April 1992 and after a storm event on June 18, 1992. The ground-water samples either were collected during 1991 or 1992. These data were collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's continuing hydrogeological investigations at the INEL. The relative isotopic ratios of hydrogen and oxygen are reported as delta H-2 and as delta 0-18, respectively. The values in water from the four surface-water sites ranged from -143.0 to -122 and from -18.75 to -15.55, respec- tively. The values in water from the 38 ground- water sites ranged from -141.0 to -120.0 and from -18.55 to -14.95, respectively.
