Notes "EMSL-LV-0539-19." "September 1978." Cover title. "This work performed under a memorandum of understanding no. EY-76-A-08-0539 for the U.S. Dept. of Energy." Includes bibliographical references.
Contents Notes During the 1974 growing season, the Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory-Las Vegas, of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected samples of fruits and vegetables grown in the area surrounding the Nevada Test Site. The objective wast o estimate the potential radiological dose to off-site residents from consumption of locally grown foodstuffs. It became necessary to collect additional samples for analysis of iron-55 and plutonium-238 and -239. This report compiles the results of the earlier study with these new results. No evidence was found of contamination of foods by these radioisotopes resulting from close-in fallout of radioactivity from nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site.
