Short summary
It is critical to identify the origins of water in arid and semiarid regions for management and protection of the water resources. The D, 18O, 3H and 14C in water samples from the Badain Jaran Desert, China, were analyzed. The results show that groundwater supplies the lakes and originates from local precipitation and adjacent mountains. Negative d-excess values of water in the area were the result of evaporation. The 14C ages do not represent the residence time of local groundwater.
