Long-Lived Man-Made Radionuclides in the Soil—Plant System

Conference paper
Part of the ILSI Monographs book series (ILSI MONOGRAPHS)


The soil is the most important link in the migration pathways, via trophic chains, of many long-lived radionuclides. An essential feature of soil is its ability to accumulate and to retain for a long time (tens and hundreds of years) radioactive isotopes coming from the outside. Therefore, for years, the contami­nated soil becomes a source of radionuclides entering agricultural products and surface and subsurface waters.
