Title

Iodine-129 in Missouri Rain and Milk

Abstract

A combination of neutron activation and mass spectrometry was used to measure129I and127I in local samples of rain and milk. The general distribution of values for the129I/127I ratio in these samples can be understood in terms of well established geochemical and biological cycles of iodine, but the origin of high129I/127I ratios in a few of the samples collected in 1976 is not understood. The procedures used to extract and purify iodine were tested by monitoring131I in rain and milk following the Chinese atmospheric bomb test of September 17, 1977.
