Purpose: To characterize the biodistribution and internal exposure of ChNPP Cs-137 and the naturally occurring Po-210 in semi-domesticated reindeer in southern Norway. Materials and method: Semi-domesticated reindeer were gathered during the seasonal autumn slaughter from Vågå herding district. Samples were screened for Cs-137 utilizing NaI-solid scintillation detector before pre-treatment for Po-210 analysis with the use of alpha-spectrometry. Internal exposure was assessed by modelling organs and tissues as aquatic organisms with DCs obtained from BiotaDC software. Internal absorbed doses were compared to external doses given by previous studies from the same herd.
