    Measurements of fall-out radioactivity in the Faroes in 1972 are presented. 90Sr (and 137Cs in most instances) was determined in regularly collected samples of precipitation, grass, milk, lamb, fish, sea water, bread, and drinking water. In addition, analyses of spot samples of potatoes, sea plants, vegetables, eggs, and human bone were carried out. Estimates of the mean contents of 90Sr and 137Cs in the human diet in the Faroes in 1972 are given.
