;FAGS TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Uranium Source Sought in Ocean Swedish Researchers May Throw Light on Radium Found in .Sea I/3WDOW <t7P)•-_ The world's largest untapped alore of uranium and radium Is being measured bv • Swedish deep-sea expedition led by'Prof. Haha Ptttersson, of Gole- bor». The expedition", aboard the 1,400- ton motor schooner Albatross, h« atudled the deep ocean 1 and Its bed during a voyage across the Atlantic and Caribbean and recently entered the Pacific through the Pan- Mua Canal, ' Many line* or research are being pursued'by .the expedition's scientists, Prof. PettcrssoTi wrote In the British scientific magazine Nature; The measurement of uranium ana radium, made by analyzing large Tolumes of sea water taken from different, depths, were not directed at discovering a method fof retrieving the elements. ' •' Radium Found "Such measurements have become of especial Importance because of the light they may shed on the Ionium precipitation in the sea," Prof. Pettersson wrote. He said such precipitation is supposed to be responsible [or the radium fuond in deep sea deposits. Echo-sounding charts of the sea bottom have beentaken to a depth of 21,680 feet,,U wns reported. They showed that the floor of the Caribbean was much smoother than that of the Atlantic. Many submarine cliffs, previous!)' unknown, were found. The depth curve moves Incessantly up and down, Pettersson reported. 1 He said the cliffs suggested long "faults," or places where the rock had buckled because of lateral pressure. The uneven surface of the bottom of the ocean made the work of measuring the sediment thickness at great depths complicated, he said. An ingenious method of sounding the sediment carpet wns developed by Prof. W. Weibull of Bofors, who accompanied the expedition. Depth charges were set off and echoes reflected both from the sediment surface rind the hard rock beneath the sediment were recorded. Carpet Uneven By that method it wns found . that th e sediment carpet—the rock ol the future—beneah the Atlantic Ocean Is 5,700 feet to 25.500 feet thick, andi beneath the Caribbean much less. The measurements , 'will be continued In the Pacific- Ocean M ' the Albatross works west. ~ An equally novel, method of sampling the sediment Itself was undertaken. A hollow-core of metal was lowered "to the sediment and a core of ooze extracted from ttie •ea floor. The cores were sem to Sweden for gtudy. "Assuming the sediment to Increase by three Inches In 1.000 years In the Atlantic Ocean, the lower strata of a core 6 Inches long should have been deposited nearly 1,000,000 years ago, or before the end of the Tertiary Age," Prof. Pettersson wrote.
