This method describes procedures designed to analyze for Pu, Np, U, Th, Am/Cm isotopes in emergency or routine vegetation samples using alpha spectrometry. It provides rapid total dissolution of samples and efficient removal of alpha interferences prior to counting by alpha spectrometry. Strontium–89/90 is also separated and counted by gas proportional counting.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
