This report contains results of measurements of the fallout radionuclides
90Sr, 137Cs , 239,240Pu , and 241Am in large volume seawater samples collected
between 1972 and 1974 in the Atlantic and Pacific as part of Geochemical Ocean
Sections (GEOSECS) program. The stations for which data are reported include
both the North and South Atlantic oceans and latitudes north of 20° S in the
Pacific Ocean. The 90Sr and 137Cs data set has been corrected by a procedure
which estimates independently the analytical blank for the laboratory
which made the analysis. When the data quality and spacing permit, water column
inventory estimates were made for each nuclide over depth intervals appropriate
to the nuclide's distribution.
