Radiocesium Fallout in The Forest Floor
Abstract:Radiocesium derived from fallout persists in small but measureable amounts in the litter and mosses on the floor of conifer stands in the Cascade Mountains of Washington. Little change in the total amount of radiocesium was observed during the years 1967, 1968, and 1969. More radiocesium was present per unit area of forest floor in four stands located in a high rainfall region west of the Cascade Crest than in a single stand located east of the crest in a low rainfall region.
