[1509.04005v2] Evaluation of ambient dose equivalent rates ...

Abstract: The air dose rate in an environment contaminated with 134Cs and 137Cs depends on the amount, depth profile and horizontal distribution of these contaminants within the ground. This paper introduces and verifies a tool that models these variables and calculates ambient dose equivalent rates at 1 m above the ground.

Vertical distribution and inventories of 137Cs in the ...

Cesium undergoes vertical and horizontal migration. Horizontal migration depends mainly on water runoff, the quantity of radionuclides in the upper surface layers, and its water solubility (Arapis and Karandinos, 2004, Mats and Bengt, 1994), while vertical migration depends on the physicochemical forms of Cs, the type of soils, the hydrological ...

CASE STUDY OF *3'CESIUM PLOTS REMEDIATION AT OAK …

the cesium (circa 1968) believed the cesium fused silica particles would not migrate vertically more than 6 to 12 in. nor migrate horizontally in any direction because of the plot metal enclosures. However, soil samples taken from the plots revealed the cesium had migrated vertically to depths of 3 to 4 ft. and

Migrating from Earth to Cesium | cesium.com

Jan 27, 2015· Another inconsistency between Cesium and Google Earth is found when trying to navigate the view in Cesium with the familiar mouse and keyboard combinations as Google Earth. Google's familiar navigation widgets are of course absent from Cesium and new users have to "feel around" with the controls before they are adept at navigating.

A Review and Critical Analysis of the "Effective Dose of ...

As the result of horizontal migration, e.g., due to strong wind or movement of animals, radionuclides can spread for hundreds of kilometers beyond the initial release site. In 1992, dust particles carried by wind from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site in the Ukraine raised the concentration of cesium-137 in Vilnius, Lithuania, by hundreds of

Migration of plutonium from freshwater ecosystem at ...

A reprocessing waste pond at Hanford has been inventoried to determine quantities of plutonium (Pu) that have been accumulated since its formation in 1944. Expressions of export were developed from these inventory data and from informed assumptions about the vectors which act to mobilize material ...

Mobility and transport of cesium and strontium in soil ...

The risks of secondary contamination driven by horizontal migration are not negligible. This study has enabled us to establish a outline for the general functioning of our soil samples. Soil slaking is undoubtedly the most efficient disaggregating process prone to mobilising cesium and strontium. It is
