This report describes particle size analysis of six soil samples from Dounreay, Caithness, Scotland, provided by Clive Auton in October 2006. It is part of the work under a United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) contract to characterise the Quaternary deposits from the Dounreay site and also includes bulk mineralogy, clay mineralogy, particle size distribution, cation exchange capacity (CEC), total organic carbon (TOC) and total inorganic carbon (TIC) data presented elsewhere. These materials were collected using a window sampler during June and July 2006 at the Dounreay site. This data was required by UKAEA to provide background mineralogical, geochemical and physical properties information to enable the evaluation and modelling of the transport radionuclide contamination in the geosphere. This report presents the results of the BGS analyses. The report consists of factual data only.
