Tritium 3H (T) is a radioisotope of hydrogen and a component of the water molecule (HTO). It is a marker for reservoirs such as the stratosphere, troposphere, and oceans involved in the hydrological cycle. Tritium monitoring is an essential research tool in hydro-climate, dating for water and recharge groundwater.
