Long Term Radiocesium Contamination of Fruit Trees Following the Chernobyl Accident

M. Antonopoulos-Domis, A. Clouvas, and A. Gagianas

Radiocesium contamination from the Chernobyl accident of fruits and leaves from various fruit trees was systematically studied from 1990 to 1995 on two agricultural experimentation farms in Northern Greece. The results are discussed in the framework of a previously published model describing the long-term radiocesium contamination mechanism of deciduous fruit trees after a nuclear accident. The results of the present work qualitatively verify the model predictions.
