Plutonium (Pu) isotope ratios can be used to differentiate between sources of Pu contamination such as nuclear weapon production, weapon fallout as well as accidental and routine releases from nuclear installations. To obtain information on the contamination level, speciation and sources of Pu in the Ob and Yenisey river systems (Siberia, Russia) and the adjacent Kara Sea, water was size fractionated onboard ship and the concentrations and atom ratios of 240Pu and 239Pu in obtained water...[Show more]
