Abstract: Atmospheric drifts and ocean currents are constantly moving and causing changes in air and water masses positions. Examined artificial radionuclides are transported from northern hemisphere, where they were produced, by oceanic streams and air currents even to the most remote places on the southern hemisphere (Eisenbud and Gesell, 1997). The purpose of the currently presented research was to broaden the knowledge on distribution of artificial radionuclides in Antarctic marine environment. Our measurements allow also the estimation the state of radioactive pollution in Antarctica before the Fukushima accident.
