As a prerequisite for most evaluations of radionuclide transport pathways in marine systems, it is necessary to obtain basic information on the sorption potential of contaminants onto particulate matter. Kd values for use in modeling radionuclide dispersion in the Kara Sea have been determined as part of several international programs addressing the problem(More)
The Arctic seas are influenced by radioactive contamination from both military and civilian sources such as global fallout, river transport, discharges from reprocessing plants and Chernobyl fallout. A joint Norwegian American field expedition was carried out to the Kara Sea in August-September 1995. An expedition to the Eastern Barents sea was conducted in(More)
Natural and artificial radionuclides are transferred from terrestrial ecosystems via the forest industry to coastal sea water. The material processed, i.e., wood, fresh water, and bark, have low levels of radionuclides, but large amounts of raw materials are processed annually. Thus the annual flux of radionuclides is substantial. The purpose of this(More)
