Abstract

Tritium samples have been analyzed from several cross-equatorial transects in the Pacific under the NORPAX and EPOCS programs. Together with earlier sections from the GEOSECS program, they allow description of the equatorial Pacific tritium transient over a period extending between approximately the 10th and 15th years after the major nuclear tests. South of the equator within the upper water layers at temperatures above 16oC, an increase of 25-60% in the decay-corrected tritium concentration is found. -from Authors
