    Measurements of fallout radioactivity in Greenland in 1982 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 1982. The report contains results from sampling expeditions to East Greenland as well as West Greenland waterJ in 1982. Brown algae collected in East Greenland in 1969 were analysed for 90Sr.
