Distribution of Uranium and Thorium in Fractionated Sediment Samples Obtained from Different Locations across Thane Creek Area (Mumbai, India)

Author(s): Maity S, Sahu SK, Pandit GG

Abstract

Uranium concentration varies from 9.01 to 12.7, 8.03 to 11.5, 9.1 to 14.0 and 10.1 to 14.2 mg/kg in grab sediment, coarse sand fraction, fine sand fraction, silt and clay fraction respectively. Thorium concentration varies from 20.0 to 29.4, 17.3 to 28.6, 19.6 to 30.4 and 21.1 to 35.9 in grab sediment, coarse sand fraction, fine sand fraction, silt and clay fraction respectively. Uranium and thorium concentrations vary in different size fractionated sediment samples like silt and clay fraction > fine sand fraction > coarse sand fraction.
