Investigation of the bioavailability of radiocesium in the Fukushima exclusion zone using a sequential extraction technique
The nuclear reactor accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in March of 2011, resulted in the release of large quantities of various radionuclides into the environment. The main radionuclide of concern still remaining today is cesium-137 due to its 30-year half-life. Several areas in the vicinity of the power plant are still considered an exclusion zone owing to contamination with radiocesium, and they have not been cleared for human resettlement. While these parts are not suitable for permanent habitation, they are accessible for field work. The purpose of this research was to analyze the ...
