Abstract

A lithium chloride (LiCl) tracer experiment in the summer of 2002 was set up at 3 study sites in the Canadian High Arctic. Soil were extracted and analyzed for vertical and lateral lithium movement one week and one year after initial application. All 3 sites experienced significant vertical and lateral losses of lithium after the snowmelt season (2003) that are attributed to elevated soil-moisture levels. This tracer methodology could be used to select waste-disposal sites located elsewhere in the Arctic
