Title:
Vertical distribution of 137 Cs in the contaminated soil of a spruce forest in Southern Germany 12 years after regeneration cutting 
Abstract:
The Chernobyl fallout of 1986 contaminated soils in Southern Germany. Levels of 137Cs activity still remain high in forest soils. The contamination of forest food products still poses a serious problem for consumer health. Silvicultural interventions may offer an option to reduce the bioavailability of 137Cs. The objective of this study is to investigate a possible effect of canopy opening and clearcutting as well as the selection of conifers and broadleaves for stand regeneration on the vertica...    »
