Seven Box core sediment samples were obtained from the 3800-meter low-level radioactive waste dumpsite located 320 km off the New York coast in the main axis of the Hudson canyon. Sorptive minerals in the sediment were calculated from the texture grain-size curve and separate mineral evaluations of the sand, silt, and clay-size fractions. The sorption mechanism of some of the radionuclides are strongly influenced by pH, Eh (redox potential), presence of Fe and Mn, organics, and ligands. These factors should be known in addition to percentages of sorptive minerals for assessment of sediment retention potential of sediments for radionuclides of concern in the low-level waste form.
