Lithium (Li) isotopes have shown large potential in tracing weathering in various water bodies, but there is limited study on Li isotopes in subsurface conditions where CO2 has been largely consumed. In this study, we use a thick sandstone aquifer in the Ordos Basin, NW China, as a natural setting to investigate the behaviors of Li isotopes in hydr...

Compared with the numerous studies on river and soil waters, studies on Mg isotopes of groundwater are limited. In this study, a sandstone aquifer in the Ordos Basin, China with contrast contents of Mg in shallow and deep groundwater is selected to examine the behavior of Mg isotopes during groundwater circulation. The δ²⁶Mg values of shallow groun...

The Ordos Basin is one of the most intensively studied groundwater basins in China. The Ordos Plateau, located in the north part of the Ordos Basin, is ideal to study the pattern of regional groundwater circulation induced by water-table undulations due to the wavy topography and the relatively simple aquifer systems with macroscopically homogeneou...

... At present, the information on solute isotopic fractionation associated with adsorption-desorption or/and ion exchange on clays or/and organic matter is limited (Tipper et al., 2016;Zhang et al., 2018). One of the most important reasons is a lack of accurate samples in field and information on potential endmembers (especially the exchangeable component). ...
... Artesian conditions develop where the hydraulic head of an aquifer is higher than the topographic surface, allowing the free-flow of groundwater through artesian wells (and/or springs). Large artesian systems are widespread, such as the Great Artesian Basin in Australia (Flook et al. 2020;Habermehl 2020), the Dakota Sandstone in the USA (Meinzer and Hard 1925), and the Ordos Plateau in northwestern China (Jiang et al. 2018). Smaller volcanic systems also display artesian conditions, such as the Honolulu artesian basin in Hawaii (USA) (Wentworth 1951) and the volcano-sedimentary aquifer of Pasuruan in Indonesia (Toulier et al. 2019). ...
