This report is a follow-up to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Technical Report WHOI-84-40. It contains 137cs and 90sr data from seawater samples collected on four cruises in the northwestern North Atlantic, Arctic Ocean, and Barents Sea during 1981 to 1985, and radionuclide data from samples collected on a cruise to the Norwegian-Greenland Seas in 1979. Also included are data from four ice stations in the Arctic from 1979 to 1985. The sample collections were made possible through collaborative efforts with several laboratories. The radionuclide analyses were done at WHOI.

Dissolved strontium in the subterranean estuary- implications for the marine strontium isotope budget Beck, Aaron J.; Charette, Matthew A.; Cochran, J. Kirk; Gonneea, Meagan E.; Peucker-Ehrenbrink, Bernhard (2013-01-13)Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the ocean supplies Sr with less radiogenic 87Sr/86Sr than seawater, and thus constitutes an important term in the Sr isotope budget in the modern ocean. However, few data exist for ...
The distribution and history of nuclear weapons related contamination in sediments from the Ob River, Siberia as determined by isotopic ratios of Plutonium, Neptunium, and Cesium Kenna, Timothy C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-02)This thesis addresses the sources and transport of nuclear weapons related contamination in the Ob River region, Siberia. In addition to being one of the largest rivers flowing into the Arctic Ocean, the bulk of the ...
Radium-based estimates of cesium isotope transport and total direct ocean discharges from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident Charette, Matthew A.; Breier, Crystaline F.; Henderson, Paul B.; Pike, Steven M.; Rypina, Irina I.; Jayne, Steven R.; Buesseler, Ken O. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-03-28)Radium has four naturally occurring isotopes that have proven useful in constraining water mass source, age, and mixing rates in the coastal and open ocean. In this study, we used radium isotopes to determine the fate and ...
