Inventory dynamics and soil factors affecting soil-to-plant ¹³⁷Cs transfers in Fukushima forest ecosystems
The objective of this study was to understand the soil factors affecting soil-to-plant transfer factors in understory plant species as well as their contribution to the total 137Cs inventory in aboveground biomass within the Fukushima forest ecosystem. Radiocesium contamination from the March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Da-ichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS) was initially deposited on the forest canopies with deposition into the soil occurring over the next few years through litterfall and precipitation. Measurements taken from the Yamakiya site in 2014 show that the contribution of understory ...
