Intro: Monitoring levels and trends of man-made radionuclides in Arctic environments is a central part of the AMAP programme. There has been an improvement in available terrestrial data, in terms of quantity, breadth of data and length of time trends. The improved database has allowed analysis of vulnerability for arctic pathways with respect to geographical variation in transfer rates, ecological half-lives and species variation.
