Abstract

The first results of activity measurement of short-lived radium isotopes dissolved in water in the Anadyr River–Bering Sea transit system are presented. The trends of the radionuclide behavior after passage through high-gradient river–coastal sea water mixing zone were identified and the exchange rate of the horizontal mixing was determined. The 224Ra/223Ra activity ratio was used to construct the “radium age” model, which served for estimating the residence time of brackish water in the Anadyr River estuary. The factors affecting this value were elucidated.
