Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Samples acquired from the Amberjack Hole located approximately 50 kilometers west of Sarasota, Florida on the West Florida Shelf at 27.28740, -83.16030. Radioisotopes of radon-222, radium-223, radium-224, and radium-226 were collected at select depths from 0 meters to 85 meters inside the blue hole. Control samples were collected 2-kilometers east of the Amberjack Hole (27.28669, -83.14043) at three depths from 0 meters to 36 meters.
