Alpha-spectrometric determinations of U- and Th-isotopes and petrographical examination were performed on Late Quaternary sapropels of cores from the Mediterranean Ridge (22M48, 22M50, PC 6, 22M45 and 17M21) and of two cores taken in the eastern part of the Levantine Basin (PC 20 and PC 18). The average U-content of 20 samples is 21.4 ppm (range 4.3–47 ppm). If compared to the normal oxidized sediments on the Mediterranean Ridge this means an U-enrichment by a factor of 30. Uranium in sapropels… CONTINUE READING
