    Abstract

    Measurements of fallout radioactivity in the Faroes in 1978 are presented. Strontium-90 (and Cs in most cases) was determined in regularly collected samples of precipitation, grass, milk, fish, sea water, bread, and drinking water. In addition, analyses were made of spot samples of lamb, sea birds, potatoes, sea plants, vegetables, eggs, and human bone. Tritium was determined in samples of drinking water. Estimates are given of the mean contents of Sr and Cs in the human diet in the Faroes in 1978.
