In connection with the radiation accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the concentration of239+240Pu was determined in surface air at several localities of Czechoslovakia during the year 1986.239+240Pu was found in the surface air in the period of April 29–May 5 in amounts ranging from 10 to 140 μBq.m−3. In the period of June–December, 1986, the239+240Pu concentration in the surface air was comparable with that before the Chernobyl radiation accident.
