- Current capabilities of mass spectrometry for analysis of selected environmental radionuclides as well as projected developments for the near future are summarized in this paper. Comparisons of cost, sensitivity and accuracy (with a particular emphasis on sensitivity) are made for those radionuclides of most interest to environmental studies and for those most likely to lend themselves to mass spectrometric analysis. In some cases where there are presently no mass spectrometric methods which are competitive with radiation counting, limiting factors are defined, and the possibility of future developments is discussed.
