Abstract

Measurements of uranium series disequilibrium in groundwaters derived from sand layers above and below the Boom clay formation in North-East Belgium are analysed in terms of uranium, thorium and radium isotopic geochemistries, water types, and their mixing in the regional groundwater systems. In a second parallel study, the "228"Ra/"226"Ra activity ratios were measured in large groundwater samples from the Underground Research Laboratory at Pinawa, Canada. This work is part of the CEC-coordinated Mirage project, Research area No. 4: Hydrogeology'.
