Discharges of 99Tc and 129I from the reprocessing plant at Sellafield have increased significantly since the mid-1990s, against the overall trend of most other radionuclides. The 'pulsed' release of 99Tc has provided an opportunity to study transport pathways and transit times in UK waters, the North Sea and beyond. Transit times estimated from the 99Tc data are signifcantly shorter than rates reported previously using other radiotracers. The possible reasons for this are discussed. A… CONTINUE READING
