Description/Abstract:
RESIDENTS OF BIKINI ATOLL WERE MOVED FROM THEIR HOME ATOLL ON 31 AUGUS T 1978. SINCE THAT TIME, THEY HAVE BEEN RELOCATED EITHER TO KILI ISLAN D, OR TO MAJURO AND EJIT ISLANDS AT MAJURO ATOLL. WHOLE BODY COUNTING AND URINE BIOASSAY WERE PERFORMED ON THIS POPULATION IN JANUARY AND MA Y 1979, AND BODY BURDENS FOR NUCLIDES POSITIVELY IDENTIFIED WERE DETER MINED FROM BOTH TECHNIQUES. DATA FROM THESE MEASUREMENTS HAVE BEEN USE D TO CALCULATE LONG TERM BIOLOGICAL REMOVAL RATE CONSTANTS FOR 137-CES IUM AND 60-COBALT AND TO RELATE THE LONG TERM RATE CONSTANT FOR 137-CE SIUM TO TOTAL BODY MASS.
