Using the radium quartet (Ra-228, Ra-226, Ra-224, and Ra-223) to estimate water mixing and radium inputs in Loch Etive, Scotland

Abstract:

The radium (Ra) quartet (228Ra, 226Ra, 224Ra, and 223Ra) has been investigated in Loch Etive, a Scottish fjord, to provide new constraints on water mixing rates and on the inputs of Ra from sediments. Maximum water transport rates for the inflowing estuarine layer at 5 m depth, determined from the excess 223Ra (223Raex), indicate that this water travels at no more than 2.4 ±.2 cm s-1 net and that it takes 17 ±. 2 d for waters to travel from the mouth to the head of the loch if no horizontal m...
