    Measurements of fallout radioactivity in Greenland in 1981 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 1981. Further results of the 239,240Pu and 241Am measurements on samples from the expedition to Thule in August 1979 are presented. Brown algae collected in East Greenland in 1969 were analysed for Pu and Am.
