Abstract

The result of research into the distribution of artificial radionuclides of137Cs in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea are reported. The data obtained permits consideration of the peculiarities of distribution of this radionuclide in the areas under investigation. The contribution of the ‘Chernobyl’ radiocaesium to the total radioactivity of these water areas is estimated.
