Accumulation of fallout cesium 137 in soils and sediments in selected watersheds

, : Accumulation of fallout cesium 137 in soils and sediments in selected watersheds. Water Resources Research 9(3): 676-686

The concentration of 137Cs ranged from 0.01 to 3.28 pci/g in soils and from 0.01 to 10.05 pci/g in sediments. The occurrence of 137Cs in sediments was significantly correlated with the clay and organic matter content. The amount of 137Cs was greater per unit area in sampled sediments than in the contributing watersheds, and the relative concentration factor was as large as 24.
