Objectives1. To collect and process surface/bottom seawater and sediments from UK coastal waters for analysis of Tc, Cs and transuranic radionuclides as part of the post EARP survey (AE0114A, Westlakes, UCD).
2. To determine colloidal distributions from desorption of actinides from particulate material (AE0114A, AE0118A).
3. To assess the feasibility of concentrating radionuclides on microcolumns for the rapid determination of 239Pu and 240Pu in environmental samples by ICP MS (AE0114A, U Sheffield).
4. To determine the effect of trawling on the remobilisation of surface sediments, via radiochemical and geochemical sampling. (AE0118A).
5. To recover, service and redeploy minipod and current meters in the N E Irish Sea. (AE0298F).
6. To collect surface/bottom NE Atlantic seawater samples for the analysis of fallout Tc, Cs and Sr (AE0114A).
7. To collect live plaice from Smiths Knoll and thus enable laboratory experiments to be carried out to evaluate radiation effects on reproduction (AE0116A).
