Bottom Line: Correlations were identified between the radionuclide concentrations and meteorological conditions and the original fallout distribution from the Chernobyl disaster.The annual average radionuclide concentrations were not significantly different from the concentrations found between 1994 and 2011.The (137)Cs and (90)Sr concentrations have been decreasing only slowly.

ABSTRACT

The (90)Sr and (137)Cs contamination in Polish surface waters has been monitoring since 1994. Surface water samples from six lakes and the Vistula and Oder Rivers were collected in spring and autumn 2012 and 2013. The mean (90)Sr and (137)Cs concentrations were 3.92 ± 0.40 and 4.49 ± 2.00 mBq L(-1), respectively. Correlations were identified between the radionuclide concentrations and meteorological conditions and the original fallout distribution from the Chernobyl disaster. The annual average radionuclide concentrations were not significantly different from the concentrations found between 1994 and 2011. The (137)Cs and (90)Sr concentrations have been decreasing only slowly.

Mentions: The 90Sr concentrations found in the lake water samples are presented in Fig. 5. As stated earlier, the highest concentrations were always found in the Rogóźno Lake samples. The concentrations in the other lakes were quite constant between 2007 and 2013. The 90Sr and 137Cs concentrations in the lake water samples were comparable.Fig. 5
