Abstract

Activities of (131)I and (137)Cs excreted in urine from two healthy males during May 1986, when contaminated air masses from Chernobyl arrived on the territory of the Czech Republic, were determined by bioassay. The data were used to estimate the intakes and committed effective doses from these radionuclides. The results for inhalation intakes are of particular interest, in the absence of sufficient contemporary data for airborne activity. They are found to be higher than initial estimates based on air sampling.
