Dataset abstract

Stable isotope and inorganic chemistry data for samples of groundwater from boreholes and springs in the sandur aquifer; glacial meltwater and river water; and glacier ice, from Virkisjokull glacier observatory. Selected water chemistry and stable isotope data are reported in Ó Dochartaigh, B. É, et al. 2019. Groundwater - glacier meltwater interaction in proglacial aquifers, Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci. https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-2019-120. See also MacDonald, A.M., Black, A.R., Dochartaigh, B.Ó., Everest, J., Darling, W.G., Flett, V. and Peach, D.W., 2016.
