Title: Prediction of runoff transport of fallout {sup 90}Sr

Abstract

A model is described for the prediction of runoff transfer of fallout {sup 90}Sr without recourse to long-term measurements. The values of model parameters can be readily established from few field measurements of the solid/solution partitioning of {sup 90}Sr and a natural, atmospherically delivered radionuclide such as {sup 210}Pb, and the usually well documented fallout and hydrologic data. The model-generated profiles of {sup 90}Sr for two major Canadian watersheds compare favorably to those established through long-term monitoring of receiving waters. 21 refs., 3 figs.
