Radium 228 and radium 226 content of ground water in fall line aquifers


Health Physics 38(4): 663-672
Radium 228 and radium 226 content of ground water in fall line aquifers
Studies of the Ra isotopic content of groundwater from a Coastal Plain aquifer adjacent to the Fall Line in South Carolina, USA, show that elevated 228Ra and 226Ra concentrations are associated with the aquifer. There is little seasonal variation in the concentration of either Ra isotope for a single well but up to an order of magnitude variation among wells within a 4 km2 area (228Ra activities range from 4.71-11.9 pCi/l; 226Ra activities range from 2.71-26.53 pCi/l).
