Influence of Soil Organic Matter on the Entry of Cæsium-137 into Plants

  author={Derek Barber},
INTEREST in the behaviour of cæsium in soils has been aroused by the presence of the long-lived nuclide, cæsium-137, in world-wide fall-out. It is well established that in temperate climates the fixation of cæsium in clay minerals causes it to be little absorbed by plants from mineral soils1, although it has been shown that in some tropical soils the degree of fixation is much less2. Thus, in general, contamination of the Western diet with cæsium-137 has been considered to depend predominantly… CONTINUE READING
