    Measurements of fallout radioactivity in the Faroes in 1979 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. Estimates are given of the mean contents of Sr and Cs in the human diet in the Faroes in 1979.
