  •  the steinhauser sample locations seem poor (0+ / 0-)

    picking places inland, northwest and southwest
    may be better?

    plus the harbor?

    sampling a few coastal locations at the surface
    may not get enough data.

      Let me unpack what you are writing above so I can understand fully what you are getting at:

      You think that the sites they have chosen are not hot enough with ~5,000 Bq/g soil or plant tissue?

      You think that picking sites that received more fallout from atmosphere will/might have a different 90-Sr/137-Cs ratio?

      You think that sampling the subsurface of the soil will give higher activities for 90-Sr and 137-Cs?

      You think that changing the locations and depths of sampling would some how change the main finding of the study where multiple locations showed very low 90-Sr/137-Cs activities?

      Perhaps you could explain why.
