福島第一原子力発電所事故の影響を強く受けた2河川において、河川水中の$$^{137}$$Cs濃度を2015年4月から2018年3月までの3年間調査した。その結果、事故後中期における、河川水中の溶存態および粒子態$$^{137}$$Cs濃度の減少傾向が明らかになった。両河川の溶存態および粒子態$$^{137}$$Cs濃度は同様の経時変化を示し、溶存$$^{137}$$Cs濃度は水温に関連した季節変動が観測されたが、時間とともに減少傾向を示した。溶存態$$^{137}$$Cs濃度の環境半減期は事故後初期の報告値よりも長く、溶存態$$^{137}$$Cs濃度の減少速度が時間とともに徐々に遅くなっていることを示唆した。溶存態$$^{137}$$Cs濃度の温度依存性は年々弱くなり、数十年にわたって同じ濃度レベルに留まる可能性が示された。

We conducted a three-year-long observation (April 2015 - March 2018) of the $$^{137}$$Cs concentration in two rivers affected by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident. The result revealed a declining trend for the dissolved and particulate $$^{137}$$Cs concentration in river water in the medium term after the FDNPP accident. The dissolved and particulate $$^{137}$$Cs concentrations showed declining trends with time, even though large seasonal variations related to water temperature were also observed in the dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentrations. The environmental half-life for the dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentration was longer than previous reported values in the early phase, suggesting that the declining trend for the dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentration is gradually decreasing with time. The temperature dependency of the dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentration became weaker year by year, and the dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentration will likely remain at the same level for several decades.
