The occurrence of 238Pu, 239(40) Pu, 241Am, 90Sr and 137Cs in the region of Nassfeld (Salzburg, Austria) is discussed at four different locations by evaluating a depth profile for each radionuclide. Furthermore, the plutonium separated from the soil samples was measured by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) to get information on the isotope ratio 240Pu/239Pu. The radiochemical procedure consisted of a Pu separation step from Am and Sr by anion exchange in 8 M HNO3 after oxidation state...[Show more]
