2015年から2018年にかけて、福島周辺の沿岸域から採取した海水,海底堆積物,間隙水中の$$^{137}$$Cs濃度を調査し、福島第一原子力発電所事故によって海底に沈着した放射性セシウムの海水中への放出の効果を評価した。間隙水中の$$^{137}$$Cs濃度は33から1934mBq L$$^{-1}$$で、海底直上水(海底から約30cmまでの間の海水)の10から40倍であった。多くの観測点で、海底直上水と間隙水との間には$$^{137}$$Cs濃度に正の相関がみられた。間隙水と堆積物間の見かけの分配係数は、0.9-14$$times$$10$$^{2}$$ L kg$$^{-1}$$であり、採取年による差は見られなかった。これらの結果は、間隙水と堆積物間での$$^{137}$$Csの平衡が比較的短期間で成立された後、間隙水中の$$^{137}$$Csが海底上に徐々に拡散することが示唆された。これらの観測結果に基づく海底付近での$$^{137}$$Csの収支計算から、堆積物中の$$^{137}$$Csの約6%が一年間に脱離・拡散すると推定された。

Concentrations of $$^{137}$$Cs in seawater, seabed sediment, and pore water collected from the area around Fukushima were investigated from 2015 to 2018, and the potential of coastal sediments to supply radiocesium to the bottom environment was evaluated. The $$^{137}$$Cs concentration in the pore water ranged from 33 to 1934 mBq L$$^{-1}$$ and was 10-40 times higher than that in the overlying water (seawater overlying within 30 cm on the seabed). At most stations, the $$^{137}$$Cs concentrations in the overlying water and the pore water were approximately proportional to those in the sediment. The conditional partition coefficient between pore water and sediment was 0.9-14$$times$$10$$^{2}$$ L kg$$^{-1}$$, independent of the year of sampling. These results indicated that an equilibrium of $$^{137}$$Cs between pore water and sediment has established in a relatively short period, and $$^{137}$$Cs in the pore water is gradually exported to seawater near the seabed. A simple box model estimation based on these results showed that the $$^{137}$$Cs in the sediment was decreased by about 6% per year by desorption/diffusion of $$^{137}$$Cs from the seabed.
