Identification of processes governing long-term accumulation of 137Cs by forest trees following the Chernobyl accident.

Abstract

The regularities of 137Cs distribution in trees (Pinus sylvestris and Betula pendula) growing in different types of forest ecosystems were investigated. High levels of heterogeneity of 137Cs activity concentrations in different parts of the trees, resulting from their varied metabolism have been shown. The data obtained demonstrate a non-uniform character… (More)
