Austrian Network of Isotopes in Precipitation and Surface Waters (ANIP)

Who uses the measured isotopic data?

Those who are interested in the data include users from applied research, national and international institutes and universities, as well as civil engineers and private users.

Collection of precipitation and surface water samples

Daily precipitation is aggregated in monthly samples and 1-litre polyethylene bottles are sent to the laboratory or stored in an underground cellar. From surface waters (rivers and lakes) a grab sample is collected once a month and treated in the same way as the precipitation samples. At the Hainburg station (Danube) daily samples are aggregated in a monthly sample.
