Distribution and enrichment of 210Po in the environment of Kaiga in South India


Distribution and enrichment of 210Po in the environment of Kaiga in South India



Journal of Environmental Radioactivity 51(3): 349-362



ISSN/ISBN: 0265-931X

DOI: 10.1016/s0265-931x(00)00094-1

Several soil and vegetation samples from the environment of Kaiga nuclear power plant site in the south western region of India were analysed for Polonium (210Po). The vertical profile, particle-size distribution, seasonal variation and the dry deposition rate of 210Po were measured employing the chemical method and alpha - counting technique. 210Po activity in soil varies from 17.1 to 228.2 Bq kg-1 with a mean value of 83.3 Bq kg-1.
