Abstract / Description of output

This paper reviews stable isotopic data concerning spring water in Greece in addition to new measurements (59); their spatial variations are investigated in order to provide basic information and identify the locally significant parameters that affect stable isotopic distributions. The area of interestwas partitioned into eight sections according to geographical location and climatic characteristics.Local spring water lines (LSWLs) are more or less consistent throughout the country. High-resolutionisoscape maps of spring freshwater (Cl&#x100000; < 200 ppm; and T < 25 C) for both 18O and 2H weregenerated, revealing several interesting features such as the effect of Pindos ridge, a strong climaticsignal in southern Greece and indications of seawater intrusion in flat coastal areas.
