Abstract  

Fourteen samples of wastes from algal plants were tested for possible analytical and/or technological use for90Sr and137Cs extraction from natural waters. Sorption experiments were carried out in static and dynanic conditions. It was noted that the examined sorbents posses high affinity for Sr2+. The sorption capacity reached the value of 4.72·10−3 mole/g. Simple and express analytical procedures for90Sr determination were developed and tested in the Dnieper estuary region.

Abstract  

Determination of lead-210 in bottom sediments is applied for evaluation of sedimentation rates and sediments ages by concentration profiles of disequilibrated lead-210 from atmospheric sources. Advences in low level liquid scintillation spectrometry (LS) fitted for natural radioactivity measurements, permit to combine the possibility of immediate bismuth-210 separation with its radioactivity registration using LS spectrometer Quantulus (LKB-1220, Wallak, Finland). The method was tested on bottom sediment samples from Baltic Sea shelf, collected during the 76th cruise of RV Academician S. Vavilov. The proposed method of separation, purification and chemical yield determination is characterized by simplicity, rapidity and may be used in routine analysis.
