Spatial radionuclides distribution was studied in recent estuarine sediments in the Krka River Estuary. Sediment samples were analyzed for K-40 and Th-232 by gamma-spectrometry. Activities of K-40 were found in the range of 18-457 Bq kg(-1) and activities of Th-232 in range of 1.9-29.4 Bq kg(-1). Distribution of Th-232 activities follows that of K-40, with correlation coefficients higher than 0.97 in all analyzed samples from the Krka River estuary. Spatial distribution of natural radionuclides (K-40 and Th-232) in recent estuarine and marine sedimentation area can be a useful tool for recognizing the possible input of terrigenous material, as well as for fast locating of the area where such material is predominantly settled.
