Abstract

Results from part of the Polish Government programme for forests radioactive contamination studies are presented. 278 samples of edible mushroom (Xerocomus badius) were analysed for radiocesium {sup 137}Cs and ({sup 134}Cs) and {sup 40}K using low-background gamma spectrometer with a germanium detector. Samples were collected from all districts of Poland in October 1991 by forest inspectors. In consequence maps of {sup 137}Cs, {sup 134}Cs and for {sup 40}K concentration in ``Xerocomus badius`` are presented. The method of measurements is also presented. Large differences in radiocesium contamination levels are observed for various parts of the country. The higher radiocesium contamination level is observed in Czestochowa-Opole region. Maximum value for {sup 137}Cs is equal to 157 kBq/kg d.m. and that for {sup 134}Cs is equal to 16.3 kBq/kg d.m. The {sup 40}K content level is nearly constant and equal to c.a. 1.3 kBq/kg d.m. Minimum values for caesium contamination were observed in the Bieszczady Mountains. The effective dose equivalent estimation due to the consumption of mushrooms is performed. The limits of ingestion amounts are calculated. (author). 15 refs, 15 figs, 6 tabs.
