In order to study adsorption behavior of U series radionuclides(Pb, Ra, Th, Ac, Pa and U) in aerated zone environment (loam-rein water system) and aquifer environment(sand-groundwater system) for safety assessment of U bearing waste), pH dependence of distribution coefficients of each element have been obtained. The pH dependence of distribution coefficients of U, Ac, Th, Ra and Pb was analyzed by model calculation of adsorption behavior based on chemical forms of each elements and soil surface characteristics, which are a cation exchange capacity and surface charge. From model calculation of adsorption behavior, the distribution coefficients' values and adsorption behavior of Pb, Ra, Th, Ac and U could be showed by a combination of cation exchange and surface-complexation adsorption model.
