Description/Abstract:
A PREVIOUSLY UNREPORTED RADIONUCLIDE, NICKEL-63 (HALF-LIFE, 92 YEARS), PRODUCED IN THE TESTING OF NUCLEAR DEVICES, WAS MEASURED IN BIOLOGICA L AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES FROM AREAS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND THE EA STERN SEABOARD OF THE UNITED STATES. THE CONCENTRATIONS OF NICKEL-63 A RE LOW (MAXIMUM OF 163 DISINTEGRATIONS PER MINUTE PER GRAM OF DRY WEIG HT), BUT THIS RADIONUCLIDE MAY BE A USEFUL TRACER OF OCEANIC PROCESSES BECAUSE OF ITS LONG HALF-LIFE AND LONG RESIDENCE TIME IN THE OCEAN.
