Title: Radiostrontium Contamination During the Year 1960. Report No. 50; CONTAMINACION POR RADIOESTRONCIO DURANTE EL ANO 1960. Informe No. 50

Abstract

The annual deposition of Sr/sup 9/0/sup >/measured in the Buenos Aires region during 1960 was 0.8 mc/km/sup 2/, and the concentration in the air was 0.2 x 10/sup -3/ mu mu c/kg, which is lower than the corresponding data for the previous year. The studies clearly indicated that during rainy seasons in spring and autumn the deposition of Sr/sup 90/ increases. The levels of Sr/sup 90/ in milk in the northern hemisphere are considerably lower (2 mu mu c/g Ca). Contamination of plants and subsequently of milk indicates the route of fall-out. The mean level of Sr/sup 90/ in the bones of children was 0.7 mu mu c/g Ca with low dispersion. (R. V. J. )
