Radioactivity Exploration : From the Arctic to the Antarctic

Persson, Bertil R LU and Holm, Elis LU (2017)
Abstract (Swedish)
This book is dedicated to professor emeritus Bengt Forkman (Nuclear Physics, Lund University) who in 1979 took the initiative to arrange an environmental radioactivity research program for the Ymer-80 expedition. He engaged his old friend Bertil Persson whom he during the 1960th inspired to university studies in Lund and who 1980 has been promoted to professor of Radioecology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden. Bertil Persson was tutor for Elis Holm at Lund University, who for his thesis was engaged in radiochemical analysis of plutonium isotopes in the environment. Elis Holm became deeply involved in Ymer-80 and management of all the following expeditions as well. We found a superior talent for the... (More)
This book is dedicated to professor emeritus Bengt Forkman (Nuclear Physics, Lund University) who in 1979 took the initiative to arrange an environmental radioactivity research program for the Ymer-80 expedition. He engaged his old friend Bertil Persson whom he during the 1960th inspired to university studies in Lund and who 1980 has been promoted to professor of Radioecology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden. Bertil Persson was tutor for Elis Holm at Lund University, who for his thesis was engaged in radiochemical analysis of plutonium isotopes in the environment. Elis Holm became deeply involved in Ymer-80 and management of all the following expeditions as well. We found a superior talent for the logistics in Kjell-Åke Carlsson (who was mechanical engineer at the department of radiation physics at Lund University). Without him, we would not have been able to solve all the thousands of practical issues and contacts with authorities and sponsors. He also contributed with the diaries extensive photographic and video documentation of all the expeditions. Unfortunately he died in October 2016 just as we finished the first draft of the manuscript to this book, that here is published to his memory. (Less)
