Abstract
An investigation of the release of Ni-63, Co-60, and Fe-55 from Inconel 600 and 347SS stainless steel specimens implanted in marine sediment for one year is described. Radiochemical analysis of the sediment from overcores of the metal specimens permits estimation of integrated activities, release rates, and diffusion coefficients of the three radionuclides. Disturbance of the sediment upon recovery limits the values to order of magnitude estimates. The redox chemistry of the sediments is characterized by measurement of several naturally occurring oxidizing agents and is correlated with the behavior of the radionuclides. Details of the deployment, sampling and analytical procedures are also given.
