Abstract

As part of an extensive study of the distribution of long-lived radionuclides from fallout in the Atlantic Ocean, a large number of measurements of cerium-144 and promethium-147 concentration have been made. Comparison of these concentrations as they vary both horizontally and vertically, with simultaneously measured concentrations of strontium-90, indicates that the rare earths are generally depleted in surface water, by comparison with the nuclides known to be soluble. This observation, coupled with frequent observation of rare-earth enrichment at depth, leads us to postulate rapid vertical transport of rare earths by attachment to particles undergoing sedimentation. This is completely plausible in terms of the 'radiocolloid' behaviour generally observed for rare earths at sea-water pH. An attempt is made to interpret this study in the overall picture of the marine geochemistry of the trivalent cations, as well as to emphasize the unique and generally useful aspects of the fallout tracer experiment.

(author) [French] Dans le cadre d'une vaste etude sur la repartition dans l'Ocean Atlantique des radionuclides de longue periode provenant de retombees, on a procede a de nombreuses mesures de la concentration du cerium-144 et du prometheum- 147. En comprenant les variations horizontales et verticales de ces concentrations avec les concentrations, mesurees simultanement, du strontium-90, on constate que les terres rares sont en general moins abondantes en surface que les nuclides connus pour etre solubles. Cette observation, jointe au fait que l'on a souvent constate un enrichissement des eaux profondes en terres rares, amene les auteurs a considerer qu'il s'effectue im transport vertical rapide des terres rares, par adhesion aux particules qui subissent une sedimentation. Cette hypothese est entierement compatible avec le comportement que les terres rares ont generalement dans un milieu ayant le pH de l'eau de mer. Les auteurs du memoire essaient d'interpreter les resultats de cette etude dans le cadre general de la geochimie marine des cations trivalente, et de mettre en evidence les aspects particuliers et l'utilite generale de cet essai d'utilisation des retombees comme indicateurs. (author) [Spanish] En el marco de un vasto estudio sobre la distribucion en el oceano Atlantico de los raclionuclidos de periodo largo procedentes de precipitaciones radiactivas, se han efectuado numerosas mediciones de la concentracion del cerio-144 y del promecio-147. Una comporacion de las variaciones horizontales y verticales de estas concentraciones con las concentraciones del estroncio-90, que fueron medidas al mismo tiempo, demuestra que las tierras rasas suelen abundar menos en las aguas superficiales que los nuclidos que se sabe son solubles. Esta observacion, unida al hecho de que se ha observado a menudo un enriquecimiento de las aguas profundas en tierras raras, permite afirmar que esos elementos experimentan un rapido transporte vertical al fijarse a particulas en vias de sedimentacion. Esta hipotesis es perfectamente compatible con el comportamiento ''radiocoloidal'' caracteristico de las tierras raras al pH del agua de mar. En la memoria se procura interpretar este estudio en el contexto de las propiedades generales de los cationes trivalentes en geoquimica marina; asimismo, se ponen de manifiesto los aspectos caracteristicos y la utilidad general de este ensayo de utilizacion de las precipitaciones como indicadores radiactivos.

Sopostavlenie ehtikh kontsentratsij po mere ikh izmeneniya kak v gorizontal'nom, tak i v verti-kal'nom napravleniyakh s odnovremenno zamerennymi kontsentratsiyami strontsiya-90 pokazyvaet, chto redkie zemli nakhodyatsya obychno v men'shikh kolichestvakh na poverkhnosti vody, chem izotopy, izvestnye kak rastvorimye. EHto zamechanie sovmestno s chastym nablyudeniem obogashcheniya redkimi zemlyami na glubine privodit nas k predpolozheniyu, chto redkie zemli bystro perenosyatsya v vertikal'nom napravlenii, blagodarya prilipaniyu k osedayushchim chastitsam.
