Abstract

The total radioactivities, {sup 131}I and {sup 134,137}Cs contents in the food and environmental samples in Suzhou city were investigated. The results of the investigation are as follows: (1) In the food, the total alpha is 0.29{approx}37 Bq/kg(L), the total beta 0.67{approx}597 Bq/kg(L), the total {sup 131}I and {sup 134,137}Cs 0.01{approx}0.1 Bq/kg(L); (2) In the water, the total alpha is 10{sup -2} Bq/L, the total beta 10{sup -1} Bq/L, the {sup 134,137}Cs is 10{sup -4} Bq/L. In the melted snow water, the {sup 134,137}Cs is as high as 10{sup -2} Bq/L; (3) In the surface air, the total alpha is 10{sup -4} Bq/m{sup 3}, the total beta 10{sup -3} Bq/m{sup 3}, the {sup 134,137}Cs is 1.98 x 10{sup -4} Bq/m{sup 3}, but this value was as high as 8.3 x 10{sup -3} Bq/m{sup 3} after three weeks of Chernobyl accident. The maximum annual effective dose equivalent to resident (adult) caused by ingesting the food and inhaling the air is 9.27 x 10{sup -7} Sv/a and the collective effective dose equivalent is 0.36 man-Sv/a.
