In order to follow the turnover of (137)Cs in natural soils and estimate future trends in exposure of livestock, samples of natural surface soils were collected at 0-3 cm depth at 464 sites in 1995 and 463 sites in 2005 covering the country. In both cases the geographical pattern observed was similar to the original distribution from 1986, but the decline of (137)Cs activity in the surface soil was not the same everywhere. In 1995 the (137)Cs reduction since 1986 was found to be considerably… CONTINUE READING
