Transfer of anthropogenic radionuclides to organisms in the Faroe Islands

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The 137Cs activity has been measured in organisms from the Faroese terrestrial, aquatic and marine environments in the years 2002, 2003 and 2004. The aim of the study was to point out organisms that can be useful indicator organisms for radioactive contamination of the environment. Measurements are available back to the early 1960’s for some organisms, and the variation with time is considered for these organisms.
