Abstract
Data on the radium content of bottom sediment material collected in 1960 and 1961 throughout the Colorado River Basin is provided. For the sediment surveys reported, 254 samples representing 121 different sampling stations were collected. Forty-nine samples representing 20 different sampling stations were collected in locations where the sediment was not influenced by uranium mining and milling activity (background locations). Detailed tables of the results of radium-226, gross alpha, and gross beta determinations on the sediments collected are included.
