URANIUM-234/URANIUM-238 DISEQUILIBRIUM AS AN AID TO HYDROLOGIC STUDY OF THE FLORIDAN AQUIFER

INVESTIGATION OF THE DISTRIBUTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL DISEQUILIBRIUM PATTERNS OF NATUALLY OCCURRING URANIUM ISOTOPES (U-234 U-238) IN WATERS OF THE FLORIDIAN AQUIFER IN NORTH FLORIDA, UTILIZING THE ANALYTICAL METHODS OF ISOTOPE DILUTION AND ALPHA-PARTICLE SPECTROMETRY, INDICATES THAT VARIATIONS IN ISOTOPIC ACTIVITY RATIOS AND CONCENTRATIONS CAN BE RELATED TO THE REGIONAL HYDROGEOLOGIC FRAMEWORK. THE DATA PERMIT INTERPRETATION IN TERMS OF (1) REGIONAL PERMEABILITY CHARACTERISTICS, INCLUDING THE EXISTENCE OF HYDROLOGIC BARRIERS, (2) GROUNDWATER CIRCULATION PATTERNS, (3) SOURCES OF WATERS FROM VARIOUS PARTS OF THE HYDROLOGIC ENVIRONMENT, AND (4) AREAS OF EXTENSIVE PLEISTOCENE LEACHING WITHIN THE FLORIDAN AQUIFER. /JH/
