Time-dependent 241Am activity in the environment from decay of 241Pu released in the Chernobyl accident.

Abstract

The time-dependent activity of the alpha-emitting radionuclide 241Am, resulting from beta-decay of 241Pu present in the accidental release from Unit 4 of the Chernobyl NPP, has been studied. The ratios of the activity of 241Pu to those of 239, 240Pu and of 238, 239, 240Pu at the time of the accident have been derived as 69.6+0.6 and 47.1+0.4, respectively… (More)
