We report glancing incidence x-ray scattering studies of the magnetic studies of the magnetic structure observed near the (001) surface of the antiferromagnet UO(2). Within about 50 angstroms of the surface, the magnetic order parameter vanishes continuously as the bulk Néel temperature from below. This contrasts sharply with the bulk transition, which is discontinuous.
