CS

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Serbia and Montenegro before it separated into two independent countries. This was the code used in international transactions to and from bank accounts in Serbia and Montenegro.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Serbia and Montenegro. This was used as an international standard for shipping to Serbia and Montenegro.

In both cases, the code is obsolete.

Comparison of the trends in WEF and CEF with the trend in CS is limited because only two caesium samples were taken in the upper half of each transect (Fig.
This may indicate an inadequate number of caesium samples, that erosion due to causes other than overland flow and cultivation can be significant, that the start-up dilution effect is significant, or that the theory given for these processes is inadequate.
For instance, processing milk to make cheese or butter decreases the Caesium 137 and Strontium 90 content by 10 times or more.
The clock is one of an elite group of caesium fountain clocks that have been built by the timing labs in Europe, the United States, and Japan as their national "primary frequency standard" for the measurement of time.
clock also can be used to evaluate the caesium fountain clocks of other countries, substantially improving the world's most accurate methods of keeping time.
Until they reach this accuracy, caesium fountain clocks, however, need a certain measurement time.
Vast areas were contaminated with caesium 134 and caesium 137 following the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power station on April 26, 1986 (1).
