NUCLEAR debris particles from the recent Chinese nuclear explosions provided a suitable medium for studying the global atmospheric circulation of airborne material in the northern hemisphere1–3. We have investigated the inter-hemispheric transfer of airborne material by measuring the radioactivities in Japan of short-lived fission products resulting from the recent French nuclear tests in the South Pacific in 1968.
