The disposal of radioactive wastes in Arctic seas has made it important to understand the processes affecting the accumulation of radionuclides in food webs in coldwater ecosystems. We examined the effects of temperature on radionuclide assimilation and retention by the bioindicator bivalve Macoma balthica using three representative nuclear waste components, 2 4 1 ~ m , 57Co, and 13'Cs. Experiments were designed to determine the kinetics of processes that control uptake from food and water, as… CONTINUE READING
