Abstract:The arctic food chain lichen-reindeer-human, transmitting 210Po and its precursor 210Pb from natural fallout to human, was studied. Lichen, plant, mushroom, and reindeer samples were collected from Finnish Lapland. The 210Po and 210Pb activity concentrations and the 210Po/210Pb ratio in these samples were determined.
