Radium on soil mineral surfaces: Its mobility under environmental conditions and its role in radon emanation. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The ultimate source of {sup 222}Rn to the atmosphere is, of course, {sup 226}Ra. Tracking the mobility of radium therefore is part of the story of radon flux assessment. The study of radium mobility and radon flux measurements has involved virtually all the reservoirs at the Earth`s surface. These include soils, groundwaters, coastal waters and the atmosphere. The attempt to understand the mobility of radium involved the study of almost all the radium isotopes ({sup 226}Ra, {sup 228}Ra, {sup 224}Ra) and the parent and daughters of these isotopes.
