This data set provides aqeuous and stable isotopic data from hot springs in the Cordiller Blanca and Cordillera Huayhaush regions of central Peru. These data include, field parameters (pH, temperature, conductivity), major ion and trace element analytical results and O, H, C, and Cl stable isotope values.
