Vertical distribution of radiocesium in soil deposits on the contaminated areas after the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident
An accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) occurred on March 11, 2011 which resulted in an environmental contamination with the radiocesium species 134Cs and 137Cs. Vertical distribution of radiocesium is important as it impacts the area dose rate. The vertical distribution of radiocesium is sensitive to wash-off by surface runoff, wind resuspension, and soil to plant transfer. Soil core samples were extracted to develop soil profiles. The purpose of this research is to study the vertical distribution of radiocesium in different soils contaminated after the accident, and ...
