Abstract  

We determined 137Cs concentrations in deep water samples of the subtropical gyre in the South Pacific collected during the BEAGLE2003 cruise. This was done at an underground facility to achieve extremely low background γ-spectrometry, and we, therefore, obtained reliable values of 137Cs activity in the deeper layers. 137Cs activity in the layers between 2000 and 4500 m ranged from 7 ± 4 mBq m−3 to 25 ± 11 mBq m−3. The inventory of 137Cs in the water column from 2000 m to the sea bottom was estimated to be 20 ± 8 Bq m−2 to 94 ± 41 Bq m−2 in this region.
