A procedure for the quantitative analysis of elemental tritium is presented. This method includes the biological oxidation of elemental hydrogen by ubiquitous soil microorganisms and distillation of the water and liquid scintillation analysis of the tritium activity. This analytical procedure is useful primarily in experimental work where verification of the concentration of an HT source or dose is needed. Universal availability of the needed equipment is a major advantage.
