    Abstract

    Discharges of waterborne radioactive pollution (90Sr, 134Cs, and 137Cs) from European nuclear reprocessing plants may be used as oceanographic tracers. The present report shows how discharges from Cap de la Hague in France were applied to estimate the transfer of pollution from the German Bight to the inner Danish waters (The Cattegat). About 40 percent of the bottom water in the Cattegat may arise from the German Bight.
