Abstract
The chloride mass balance method was used to estimate the average diffuse groundwater recharge on northeastern Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), where the largest recharge to the volcanic island aquifer occurs. Rainwater was sampled monthly in ten rainwater collectors to determine the bulk deposition rate of chloride for the 2008-2014 period. Average chloride deposition decreases inwardly from more than 10 g center dot m(-2)center dot year(-1) to about 4 g center dot m(-2)center dot year(-1). The a...
