    Abstract

    Measurements of fall-out radioactivity in the Faroes in 1 969 are presented. Sr-90 (and Cs-1 37 in most instances) was determined in regularly collected samples of precipitation, grass, milk, lamb, fish, bread, and drinking water. In addition, analyses of spot samples of potatoes, sea water, sea plants, birds, vegetables, eggs, and human bone were carried out. Estimates of the mean contents of Sr-90 and Cs-137 in the human diet in the Faroes in 1969 are given.
