HLY-08-03 Thorium-234 and Uranium-238 Distributions in the Bering Sea


The data in the accompanying dataset includes samples collected by the Moran Geochemistry Lab on the spring leg of the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) study from 04 July 2008 to 30 July 2008 aboard the US Coast Guard Cutter Healy (WAGB-20). BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. Data are organized by station and sample depth, with station position (latitude and longitude) also included.

This dataset includes the following: Total 234Th and dissolved 238U activities. These radionuclides are reported in units of dpm (disintegrations per minute) L-1. In addition are the deployment and recovery dates and positions.
