A theoretical basis for logarithmic correlations of fractionated radionuclide compositions is described. Implications for nuclear chemical studies of bomb debris and application to the prediction of partition of Sr90 and other biologically important radionuclides among particles of various sizes, and consequently between local and world-wide fallout, are indicated.
