Experimental determination of transfer coefficients of 137Cs and 131I from fodder into milk of cows and sheep after the Chernobyl accident



Experimental determination of transfer coefficients of 137Cs and 131I from fodder into milk of cows and sheep after the Chernobyl accident



Health Physics 57(6): 967-973



Following the Chernobyl accident in April 1986, the transfer of 131I and 137Cs from feed to milk was studied under experimental and common agricultural conditions. From measurements in different dairy farms in Southern Bavaria, equilibrium transfer coefficients for cows' milk were calculated to be 0.003/dl (range 0.0015 to 0.005) for 131I and 0.003/dl-1 (range 0.0025 to 0.004) for 137Cs.
