Purpose
Radon mapping and radon discrete water column sampling to
assess groundwater discharge.
Summary
Mapping of water-column radon activity took place in Snug
Harbor on July 7 aboard a slow-moving skiff equipped with RAD7 radon
detectors and a YSI sonde interfaced to a laptop computer. This
effort focused on both a low-tide and high-tide circumnavigation on
that day.  Simultaneously, discrete water samples (14 during the
low-tide and only 11 during the high-tide due to logistical
difficulties) were collected for subsequent radon analysis, jointly
by kayakers using a peristaltic pump to take surface water and by
people in the radon mapping vessel who used a Niskin bottle to this
same end.
