Dolon village located about 60 km from the border of the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site is known to be heavily contaminated by the first USSR atomic bomb test in August 1949. Soil samples around Dolon were taken in October 2005 in an attempt to evaluate internal thyroid dose arising from incorporation of radioiodine isotopes (mainly $$^{131}$$I). Iodine-129 in soil was measured by using the technique of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry. From the relationship between $$^{129}$$I and $$^{137}$$Cs (corrected for background and decay from 1949 to 2005) accumulated levels, the background level of $$^{129}$$I and the $$^{129}$$I/$$^{137}$$Cs ratio around Dolon were estimated to be (6.4 $$pm$$0.4) $$times$$ 10$$^{13}$$ atoms m$$^{-2}$$ and 0.25 $$pm$$0.16, respectively. This $$^{129}$$I/$$^{137}$$Cs ratio is almost similar to the fission yield ratio for $$^{239}$$Pu fast fission (0.24).

To investigate their spatial distribution and physicochemical properties of the radiocaesium-bearing micro particles (CsMPs), an efficient methodology for determine and analysis them is required. Here we focused on CsMPs from litters as they may affect the radiocaesium cycling in forest ecosystem. In this study we developed a method to determine CsMPs (mostly 1-10 $$mu$$m sizes) from litters by combine digestion treatment and automatic particle analysis with FE-EPMA. In total it took up to 3 days for detecting one CsMP from huge amounts of mineral-like and metallic particles. In the ToF-SIMS analysis for Cs isotope ratios of CsMPs to understand their emission source as the next step, pretreatment for easily detecting micron-sized samples is needed. To solve this problem, FIB technique was used for Gallium marking formation around target sample. Preliminary Cs isotope ratios(133Cs, 134(Cs + Ba), 135Cs, 137(Cs + Ba)) and their distributions of CsMPs were determined by applying these approaches. We developed pretreatment for microscopy and ToF-SIMS analysis of CsMPs.
