This paper gives the first data on239,240Pu and241Am in Chinese soils. Surface soil samples with a set of 0–5 cm and 5–20 cm depth were collected from Beijing, Taiyuan, Shijiazhuang and Jinang of China in 1990, and239,240Pu,241Am and137Cs, including naturally occurring radionuclides, in these samples were measured to evaluate their present levels and distributions. From these results, the average accumulated depositions were estimated roughly to be 24±13 MBq/km2 for239,240Pu, 10±5 MBq/km2 for241Am and 1.2±0.7 GBq/km2 for137Cs. The activity ratios of239,240Pu/137Cs and241Am/239,240Pu ranged from 0.016 to 0.026 with a mean value of 0.020±0.004 and 0.35 to 0.49 with a mean value of 0.43±0.05, respectively.
