  • Content Description: Plutonium-238 concentrations in 8 sediment cores from water bodies near Mound Laboratory are reported. All have been measurably contaminated and for the most part show concentrations with depth in the sediment suggesting that chemical and/or biological processes may be quite active, and that run-off from nearby contaminated soil is probably continuing. The integrated Pu-238 deposits indicate that these samples essentially represent the complete sediment column.
