Abstract

Trace amounts of elemental tritium (HT) were released continuously to the surface atmosphere at a site at Chalk River Laboratories, Canada over the 12-day period in 1994 from July 27 to August 8. After the HT gas reached the surface field, some portion of it was converted into the water form (HTO) mainly by microorganisms in the soil. This paper analyzes the variation with time of tissue free-water tritium and organically bound tritium is several plant species during the HT release.
