    Measurements of fallout radioactivity in Greenland in 1980 are reported. Strontium-90 (and Cesium-137 in most cases) was determined in samples of precipitation, sea water, vegetation, animals, and drinking water. Estimates are given of the mean contents of 90Sr and 137Cs in the human diet in Greenland in 1980. Provisional results of the 239,240Pu and 241Am measurements on samples from the expedition to Thule in August 1979 and from the Swedish YMER expedition in 1980 are presented.
