Distribution coefficients for 85Sr and 137Cs in Japanese agricultural soils and their correlations with soil properties

Abstract

In this work, soil-soil solution distribution coefficients (K d) of Sr and Cs were obtained for 112 Japanese agricultural soil samples (50 paddy soil and 62 upland soil samples) using batch sorption test. The relationships between Sr-or Cs-K d values and soil properties were discussed. Furthermore, the amount of Cs fixed in soil was estimated for 22 selected soil samples using a sequential extraction method. Then, cross effects of some soil properties for Cs fixation were evaluated.
