The vertical distributions of 239+240Pu-specific activities and 240Pu/239Pu atom ratios in sediment cores of the Japan Sea were investigated. For comparison, the 239+240Pu-specific activities and 240Pu/239Pu atom ratios in the surface layer of bottom sediments in the Sea of Okhotsk were also determined. The 239+240Pu-specific activities in the surface layer sediments varied from 0.43 to 2.65 mBq/g in the Japan Sea. The lowest value was seen in the eastern Japan Basin, while the highest value… CONTINUE READING
