Global atmospheric and underground nuclear explosions since 1945

Year: 2006 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Nuclear explosions - especially the atmospheric tests in the Arctic and from US, UK and Chinese tests at other sites in the world - are the primary source of radioactive contamination in the Arctic.
