Abstract Coastal waters contain elevated dissolved activities of four radium isotopes. These elevated activities arise through desorption of Ra from particle surfaces and the input of submarine groundwaters enriched in Ra. The input of Ra near the coast is balanced by a flux of each Ra isotope toward the open ocean. Two of the Ra isotopes decay almost completely before they reach the edge of the continental shelf; the other two decay hardly at all. These differences in decay rates provide a… CONTINUE READING
