  Concentrations of caesium, which has a half-life of 30 years, are particularly important in determining which areas will be off-limits .   Whereas cesium, which has a half-life of thirty years, has been present in the oceans, in some degree, since the nuclear-weapons tests of the fifties and sixties, cesium, which has a half.

Residual radioactive material guidelines for strontium and cesium were derived for the Laboratory for Energy-Related Health Research (LEHR) site in Davis, California. The guideline derivation was based on a dose limit of mrem/yr. NRPB (a) Revised Generalised Derived Limits for Radioisotopes of Strontium, Iodine, Caesium, Plutonium, Americium and Curium.

A brief treatment of radioactive isotopes follows. For full treatment, see isotope: Radioactive isotopes. Every chemical element has one or more radioactive isotopes. For example, hydrogen, the lightest element, has three isotopes with mass numbers 1, 2, and 3. Only hydrogen-3, however, is a radioactive isotope, the other two being stable.   Cesium is mainly absorbed by muscles, and due to long physical half-lives of its radioisotopes (30 years for Cs and y for Cs) it remains in the body until it is excreted ( days biological half-life).

Caesium (IUPAC spelling) (also spelled cesium in American English) is a chemical element with the symbol Cs and atomic number It is a soft, silvery-golden alkali metal with a melting point of °C ( °F), which makes it one of only five elemental metals that are liquid at or near room temperature.
