Field study to determine plutonium contents of wheat and soil in a warm humid area

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A field study was initiated in the fall of 1974 at the United States Energy Research and Development Administration's Savannah River Plant near Aiken, South Carolina, to determine the spatial and temporal variation of plutonium in soil-plant systems, with wheat as the crop of interest. The study was conducted on a field adjacent to a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. Soil in this field was lightly contaminated with plutonium originating from atmospheric releases by the reprocessing plant during its 20 years of operation and from global fallout. The plant releases provided a true industrial source of plutonium for study purposes. (auth)
