Iodine-131 and various other radionuclides were released into the atmosphere from the damaged Japanese reactors of Fukushima Dai-ichi from 12 to 22 March 2011. The contaminated air mass was detected in France after 24 March; samples of grass, vegetables, and milk have been analyzed for (131)I by the IRSN, considering the fact that few values of iodine-131(More)
Experiments resulted in determination of K(d) values for (241)Am and (239+240)Pu in 6 soils whose characteristics are representative of agricultural soils found around French nuclear power plant sites. These experiments were conducted in stirred batch reactors and the sorption isotherms were plotted. For americium, the experimental K(d) values varied from(More)
For 10 years, (14)C measurements have been performed around French nuclear power plant sites, both in zones influenced and zones not influenced by gaseous releases. Examining the results from these measurements in the terrestrial environment shows that the discharges have a very slight impact on the radiocarbon level (with a relative increase in the(More)
Most of the safety, performance, or radiological impact assessments concerning either actual or potential releases, when they comprise biosphere calculations, use parameters such as transfer or accumulation factors requiring their associated values. One international example is the IAEA SRS No. 19 (2001) on the assessment of routine releases. If future(More)
From 1988 to 1993, the Nuclear Safety and Protection Institute (Institut de Protection et de Sûreté Nucléaire--IPSN) conducted experimental programs focused on transfers to vegetation following accidental localized deposits of radioactive aerosols. In relation to vegetable crops (fruit, leaves, and root vegetables) and meadow grass these experiments have(More)
