|Description of the Book that can be Used in a Scholarly or Scientific Journal||
Tritium, radioactive isotope of hydrogen, with a half-life of 12.32 years and with a maximum energy of 18 keV beta radiation, can be a radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin. Tritium is very useful hydro-geological tracer and can be successfully applied in assessing the age of ground waters and residence times of continental hydrologic systems or as an oceanic transient tracer.
