Abstract:

129I is an anthropogenic isotope currently produced during nuclear fuels reprocessing, and formerly during above-ground nuclear testing. 129I is concentrated in the marine environment with known point sources in Europe. Since about 1990 the amount of 129I is surface waters of the world oceans has increased by more than two orders of magnitude. This influx of 129I has been widely studied in a variety of marine archives, including seawater, seaweed and corals. This talk will review studies using 129I as a marine tracer and will focus on coral records from the South China Sea. These record the first influx of anthropogenic 129I in the 1950s and early 1960s.
