White Oak Creek Embayment [WOCE] Site Characterization and Contaminant Screening Analysis, January 1993
Originating Office: Environmental Sciences Division, Clinch River Environmental Restoration Program, Energy Systems Environmental Restoration Program
Finding Aids: Document center databases
Series Description: This report summarizes sediment analyses of samples taken from White Oak Creek during 1990. The samples revealed cesium-137 contamination near the sediment surface, and the analyses provided a more thorough characterization of the contamination than previous sampling had done. Appendices include background information about the area, the screening approach used, a list of pertinent reference documents, and contaminant data for radionuclides, organics, and inorganics. Cesium activity is recorded in curies, or picocuries or becquerels per liter (Ci, pCi/l, or Bq/l). Concentration summaries, depth profiles, exposure rates, in microRoentgen per hour (uR/hr), and other data are given.
Data Elements: 89, 103, 117, 118, 124
