This paper describes the predictions of the transfer of 137Cs to rice plants following soil deposition during a non-growth season of rice by a dynamic compartment model considering the soil properties, and their comparison with experimental results. Major processes considered in the model were percolation, soil mixing by plowing, plant uptake, leaching to deep soil, fixation to clay mineral, and time-dependent growth of a plant. To consider the effects of the soil properties (pH, clay mineral… CONTINUE READING
