Health Physics Society Journal

Health Physics Journal,
Vol. 77, No. 5, November 1999
On the cover: A study of direct contamination to fruit and leaf-to-fruit transfer factors for 134Cs and 85Sr was done on grapevines, apple trees, and pear trees to help assess public dose from accidental environmental contamination. See article by F. Carini et al. on page 520 for more information.
