Abstract

Ambient aerosol size distributions of 131I, 103Ru, 132Te and 137Cs radionuclides were measured in Helsinki, Finland during May 7 - 14, 1986. Radioactivity size distributions were unimodal. Geometric mean diameter of 131I was in the size range 0.33 - 0.57 um a.e.d. Other isotopes had geometric mean diameters in the size range 0.65 - 0.93 um a.e.d.
