This study is based on monthly Be deposition data at 29 of the stations of Romania's National Environmental Radioactivity Surveillance Network (NERSN), with different geographical and climatological conditions, extending over periods up to 17 years (1979-1995). The Be activity in each monthly sample from each station was determined using high-resolution gamma-ray spectrometry performed at the Environmental Radioactivity Laboratory, Bucharest-Afumati. The annual dynamics of atmospheric deposition of Be at each NERSN station showed a strong seasonal trend, very similar to the precipitation regime, with the highest values being observed in spring/summer and the lowest in winter.
