A Natural Analogue Study of Radionuclide Migration in Clays

Abstract

The use of sediment laid down in a Scottish loch during the Flandrian marine transgression as a source term for a “natural analogue” study of elemental migration in clays over a timescale of 103 − 104 y has been investigated. Depth profiles of over 20 elements have been measured which illustrate varying post depositional behaviour ranging from effectively total immobility to complete redistribution throughout the sediment profile. These results are contrasted with laboratory batch sorption data for a range of nuclides on samples of this sediment.
