Abstract:

Natural seawater was required for use in experiments designed to determine the dissolution rate of certain nuclear fuel materials. A literature survey was conducted and a method was devised for the collection, storage and analysis of the water. In brief, the method stipulates 1 off-shore collection of surface water in polyethylene carboys which are subsequently stored, at a reduced temperature, in a dark location and 2 monitoring biological and chemical composition via microfiltration, chlorinity, oxygen, alkalinity, phosphate and nitrate analyses.
