Abstract

Relevance of Radiocaesium Interception Potential (RIP) : The extent of 137Cs retention in soil is very important in order to assess the uptake by the vegetation and the subsequent risk of food chain contamination. The Radiocaesium Interception Potential (RIP - Cremers et al., 1988) is an intrinsic soil parameter that can quantify that retention.
