Dislocation of the 137Cs and 40K radionuclides in the podsol profiles of the Tatra Mountain soils (South Poland)
The amount and dislocation of the gamma-radionuclides (artificial cesium and natural potassium) in the Haplic podsol profiles of the Tatra Mountains have been described. These soils belong to the group of penetrable formations what is a result of their texture. They provide a good example of percolation and sorption possibilities of the radionuclides within the soil profile. The highest concentration of radionuclides has been detected in raw humus and spodic (illuvial humus-iron) layers, at the surface.
