Prediction of 137Cs deposition from atmospheric nuclear weapons tests within the Arctic


, : Prediction of 137Cs deposition from atmospheric nuclear weapons tests within the Arctic. Environmental Pollution 104(1): 131-143

A method of predicting the spatial distribution of 137Cs deposition in fallout in the Arctic from atmospheric nuclear weapons testing is described. The method uses a relationship between deposition and precipitation at Tromso (Norway) calculated for each year since 1955, which is spread over the Arctic using a global precipitation dataset within a geographical information system.

EPR studies of Mn2+ binding to bovine pancreatic deoxyribonuclease I show that the enzyme can bind three Mn2+ ions at pH 7.5 and 2 degrees. Two sites bind Mn2+ strongly, with a Kd of 10(-4)M, and the third binds Mn2+ weakly, with a Kd of 10(-3)M....
