This mixture will vary depending on whether radioactive daughter products in the magma are whisked away as gas.
Generally speaking, a positive disequilibrium ratio (>1) is where uranium is present in concentrations greater than it's daughter products and is therefore underestimated by radiation measuring methodologies such as gamma-radiation logging.
It was observed that the radionuclides identified and quantified from the gamma ray spectral (Apendix2) are decay daughter products of naturally occurring radioactive element [sup.238]U and [sup.232]Th.
If dry-cleaning fluids are found, then it is necessary to employ a combination of methods, including groundwater transport modeling and analysis for daughter products.
