Abstract

The impact of loading cargoes of phosphate ore into ships on the near marine environment at the Syrian coast has been evaluated. Results have shown asignificant enhancement of Po-210 Pb-210 and other natural radionuclides in sediment and surface water inside the port area. The highest Po-210 and Pb-210 concentrations observed in sediment were found to be 170 and 64 Bq kg(-1), respectively, while Pb-210 and Po-211 concentrations in surface waterranged from 5 to 20 mBq l(-1) and 0.93 to 3.23 mBq l(-1). In addition, comparable values of Po-210 and Pb-210 for all marine organisms (algae, crab and fish) suggest that their use as indicators for phosphate pollution is not recommended. However, the effect of loading cargoes on the port marine environment of Tartous was found to be mainly related to wind direction whereradioactive air particulate are either being dispersed to land or sea.
