抄録: Three sediment cores about 50 cm lengths collected from the coastal of Coal-Fired Power Plant at Kapar, Selangor, Malaysia on 25th October 2003 to investigate fluctuation activity of natural thorium isotopes such as thorium-232, thorium-230 and thorium-228 in various depths of sediments core at the effluent area of Kapar Coal electric power station. Then also affect from the coal-fired power station operation in enhancement activities of natural thorium isotopes to the marine environment. The unsupported activity of thorium-228 used to estimate the sediment mixing with extremely high rate value of 12455cm2 yr(-1) at the hot water discharge station. The activity range of thorium-232, thorium-230 and thorium-228 was from 4.38±0.14 to 11.75±0.51 dpm/g, 2.73±0.11 to 9.54±0.43 dpm/g and 3.34±0.19 to 12.38±0.61 dpm/g, respectively. All three isotopes display non-uniform and greatly fluctuated distribution from surface to the deeper layers as revealed by high sediments mixing. The ratio values of thorium-230/thorium-232 and thorium-228/thorium-232 also exhibited as non-uniform profile where the average ratio of thorium-228/thorium-232 was about 0.76 indicating low contain activity of uranium-238 or uranium-234 in the detrital materials and that uranium was tends to diffuse from sediments during the weathering, erosion and sediments transport. Meanwhile, the ratio of thorium-228/thorium-232 less than unity cause by the leach out process of radium-228 from sediment-water interface. The statistical correlation coefficient value obtained from the Pearson method have a positive correlation between thorium-232, thorium-230 and thorium-228 with Al, Fe and Mn, indicating thorium isotopes were attached with the oxides metals. Then the total carbon value also shows a significant negative correlation with thorium-232 and thorium-228 where these isotopes tend to decrease with increasing total carbon content in the sediments.
