Abstract  

The concentrations of137Cs were determined by in 11 sediment samples, collected along the Romanian sector of the Danube river and the Black Sea coast during 1994 γ-ray spectrometry. The concentrations of90Sr in the same sediment samples were determined by β-counting of the90Y oxalate, precipitated after strontium separation using a strontium extraction chromatography column. The concentration distributions of137Cs and90Sr are compared with the238Pu and239,240Pu concentration distributions in the same samples, reported in a previous paper. The accumulation potential of137Cs,90Sr and plutonium isotopes in the river and sea sediments analysed is discussed.
