Radium-226 is distributed uniformly in the Tongue of the Ocean. The average concentration is 4.0 ± 0.3 × 10–14g/l, or the same as the radium content in the surface water of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The radium concentration increases in two vertical profiles in the Northeast Providence Channel from about 3.8 × 10–14g/l at the surface to about 6.6 × 10–14g/l at the 3600-meter depth.
