We have characterized "MnO2 Resin," a new resin developed by the PG Research Foundation, for radium adsorption over wide ranges of pH, reaction times and salt concentrations. We show that the sorption of 133Ba (used as a proxy for Ra) is highly dependent on pH with the most useful range from pH 4 to 8. The surface layers of the Mn oxides apparently become(More)
In order to estimate the fluxes of Ra isotopes, we measured 224Ra, 226Ra, and 228Ra activities in the Ulsan Bay mixing zone. The convex upwards curvature of the plot of Ra isotope activities versus salinity for the mixing zone suggests that Ra isotopes are supplied from particles entering the mixing zone from both the river and bottom sediments.
