Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The principal aquifer of the Lagan Valley, Northern Ireland, is the Triassic Sherwood Sandstone formation. A detailed hydrogeochemical interpretation has been made of this formation. Correlation of major ion analyses highlights the importance of dedolimitization in the geochemical evolution of the aquifer's water. Results from geochemical modelling and radiocarbon dating have shown the importance both of recharge through the till and of water mixing in the geochemical evolution of the water. Geochemical modelling results differed from previous flow model conclusions, highlighting the importance of considering both techniques in hydrogeological investigations.
