Sažetak
Because of the Chernobyl nuclear accident which led to enhanced deposition of all fission products, the contamination of human environment in the Republic of Croatia has been much higher than that of the past two decades. The paper deals with the investigation of deposition and contamination of fission product radionuclides (137Cs and 90Sr in particular), especially of the human food chain. Its aim was to determine differences in contamination levels resulted from the Chernobyl accident and the large-scale atmospheric nuclear weapon tests. For one year following the Chernobyl accident, radiation doses that have been received from external and internal exposures were estimated for 1-y old infants, children at the age of 10-y and for adults. The corresponding annual effective doses were 1.49 mSv, 0.93 mSv and 0.83 mSv, respectively. The paper also gives data on 137Cs and 90Sr yearly intakes by foods and corresponding effective doses received by the population of Croatia for many years, due to the global fallout followed nuclear weapon tests and the Chernobyl accident.
