Review paper on in situ water isotope methods published

….I will never write a review paper again ;)….

The in situ isotope methods for measuring water isotopes directly in the field we use have undergone development and improvements within the last decade, but nobody ever wrote up how to do this if you are not familiar with such (rather complicated) approaches. With the development of the Stem Borehole Equilibration Method it was time to review what has been done so far and some practical advises for future applicants. We proudly present our review on in situ water isotope measurements in soils and plants!
