The vertical distribution of the Cs-137 derived from Chernobyl fall-out in the uppermost Sphagnum layer of two peatlands in the southern Alps (Italy)


, : The vertical distribution of the Cs-137 derived from Chernobyl fall-out in the uppermost Sphagnum layer of two peatlands in the southern Alps (Italy). Water, Air, and Soil Pollution 75(1-2): 93-106

The patterns of concentration of the Cs-137 derived from the Chernobyl accident were analysed in a series of vertical profiles of Sphagnum collected at two peatlands in the Southern Alps, Italy. The peak concentrations of Chernobyl radiocaesium were found in segments of Sphagnum corresponding to plant tissues produced in the 1986 vegetation season.
