Plutonium Isotope Ratios in the Yenisey and Ob Estuaries

Skipperud, Lindis; Oughton, D; Fifield, L Keith; Lind, O; Tims, Stephen; Brown, Judith Elizabeth; Sickel, Morten


Over the past 50 years, nuclear weapons' tests and releases from the nuclear industry have introduced anthropogenic plutonium into the environment. In the Arctic environment, the main source of plutonium is from the atmospheric weapons testing, but previous studies of plutonium in the Kara Sea have shown that, at certain sites, other releases can give rise to enhanced local concentrations. The present paper presents results from determination of plutonium concentrations and isotope ratios in...[Show more]
