Marek Zaluski, Ph.D. 10104021031600Tracer TestA tracer test is a field method used in hydrogeology to quantify selected hydraulic or hydrochemical parameters. In its most common form, a tracer test is conducted by emplacing a defined quantity of traceable substance or a heat source within the aquifer and tracking it down hydraulic-gradient, where at certain points of space and time, its quantity is measured. This form of a tracer test can be viewed as a positive-displacement slug test or an injection test in which st…
