TracerLPM (Version 1): An Excel« Workbook for Interpreting Groundwater Age Distributions from Environmental Tracer Data

TracerLPM is an interactive Excel« (2007 or later) workbook program used to evaluate groundwater age distributions from environmental tracer data by using lumped parameter models (LPMs). User-defined age distributions, such as those determined from particle tracking, and those generated from LPMs can be used to calculate past and future concentrations of non-point source contaminants and in evaluating the response of wells or receptors to changes in source loading using TracerLPM.
