Radon mapping and discrete water sampling in West Falmouth
Harbor corroborated by infrared fly-over to detect low-temperature
groundwater discharge organized with collaborator Ann Giblin, MBL.
Information to be Derived
radioisotopic tracers
Mapping of water-column radon activity throughout all of
West Falmouth Harbor took place on two consecutive days on August 9
and 10, each time covering a large portion of the harbor during a
low spring tide and with the same equipment setup as on July 7.  No
discrete radon samples were collected during this field effort, but
15 water-column samples were collected and filtered for later radium
analyses using a bilge pump to pull water into containers carried
aboard an MBL owned and operated boat.   This event was coordinated
with simultaneous thermal imaging conducted from a small aircraft
(carried out during the afternoon of August 10 by scientists from
the EPA Narragansett Bay lab).
