Sažetak
Marine radioecology research in the Adriatic area carried out by the Radiation Protection Unit of the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health is reviewed and described. Measurements of the Adriatic radioactivity started in 1963, as a part of an extended monitoring program of radioactivity in Croatian environment. The main sources of the radioactive contamination of the Adriatic Sea are fallout from past nuclear weapon testing and the Chernobyl accident. In 2005, the activity concentrations of fission radionuclides are in all environmental samples collected on the Adriatic detectable on very low levels. The 90Sr data obtained from the long-term monitoring have been used to estimate the upper limit of the Adriatic Sea water turnover time, which was found to be 3.4 ± 0.4. The detailed knowledge about the seawater circulation, including the turnover time is essential for planning the overall communal and other wastewater management on the Adriatic coast. The plans for future marine radioecological investigations are presented.
