I-131 in Air
Cs in Air
Note1: Significance of these concentrations
The concentrations of I-131, which arrived at the atmosphere of Greece, due to the nuclear accident at Fukushima, is of the order of 100 000 smaller than the relevant concentrations in the atmosphere of certain regions in Greece, on May 1986, due to the Chernobyl nuclear accident.
Suppose that such concentrations of I-131 remain in the atmosphere of Greece for one year, which is highly improbable. Then the additional yearly dose from I-131 will be hundreds of thousands times smaller than the yearly dose from natural radiation.
Similar remarks hold for the Cs concentrations, also .
