Title: Systematical Investigations of Cs - 137 Concentration in Soils in Bansko - Razlog Region

Abstract

Systematical investigations of Cs-137 concentration in soil in Bansko - Razlog region have been performed for the first time on a total area of about 40 km2. By means of high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy the radio-nuclide content of soil samples has been determined. The Cs-137 deposition density following the Chernobyl accident has been estimated and compared with results obtained in other countries. The additional dose rate caused by this fallout has been estimated, too.
