Abstract  

Since the accidental loss of four nuclear weapons by a B-52 at Thule Airbase, Greenland in 1968, the marine environment at Thule has showed enhanced levels of Pu and Am. Most of the activity is confined to the benthic environment within a distance of 50 km from the crash site of the B-52. Samplings of sediments, benthos, seaplants, fish, and water have been carried out in 1968, 1970, 1974, 1979, and in 1984. The study presented herein intends to answer the following questions: What is the mean residence time of these transuranics in the benthic communities? Do Pu and Am behave differently in the environment?
