  • Content Description: Knowledge of contemporary environmental levels of transuranium elements is necessary as baseline information if the future impact of nuclear fuel plants and power reactors is to be evaluated. The chemical behavior of these elements at low concentrations in the environment is also important in hazard prediction. This paper describes methods for the analysis of environmental materials for several transuranium elements and summarizes the results for the past several years. In some cases comparison with natural uranium and thorium was useful, and their concentrations were also determined.
