Abstract

The deposition velocity of gaseous organic129I species from the exhaust air stack of the Karlsruhe reprocessing plant onto pasture grass was measured by a field experiment. By simultaneously measuring the amount of129I deposited per unit area of pasture grass and the time integrated mean air concentration of129I a deposition velocity of Vg=5.8×10−1 /cm s−1/ onto pasture grass was determined.
