Title: Environmental Sciences Branch semiannual progress report, January-June 1981

Research and evaluation activities for the period January 1, 1981 to June 30, 1981 are summarized. Progress in four primary areas of effort are reported: dust transport, distribution of transuranics in sediment, evaluation of critical ecological pathways for radionuclides, and terrestrial ecosystem compartmentalization of plutonium and americium. Progress is also described in programs dealing with Rocky Flats Plant land management, meteorological analysis of a spring windstorm and of a flash flood, efficiency measurements on filter media used for environmental monitoring, aerosol collection efficiency measurement on a Sierra high-volume impactor sampler, and incident evaluation techniques using foliar deposition sampling.
