Key factors controlling radiocesium sorption and fixation in river sediments around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, 1; Insights from sediment properties and radiocesium distributions

Tachi, Yukio; Sato, Tomofumi*; Akagi, Yosuke*; Kawamura, Makoto*; Nakane, Hideji*; Terashima, Motoki; Fujiwara, Kenso; Iijima, Kazuki

Science of the Total Environment, 724, p.138098_1 - 138098_11, 2020/07

 Times Cited Count:9 Percentile:68.9(Environmental Sciences)

To understand and predict radiocesium transport behaviors in the environment, highly contaminated sediments from Ukedo and Odaka rivers around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant were investigated systematically focusing on key factors controlling radiocesium sorption and fixation, including particle size, clay mineralogy and organic matter.

To understand and predict radiocesium transport behaviors in the environment, sorption and fixation behaviors of radiocesium on river sediments from Ukedo and Odaka rivers around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant were investigated systematically focusing on Cs sorption and fixation mechanisms and their relationship with Cs concentrations and sediment properties including clay mineralogy and organic matter.

Mineralogical changes and associated decrease in tritiated water diffusivity after alteration of cement-bentonite interfaces

Alteration of bentonite-cement interfaces and accompanying changes in diffusivity of tritiated water was experimentally investigated using intact hardened cement specimens. The alteration by carbonate solution was accompanied by mineralogical changes at the interface and a decrease in the diffusivity to 70% of the initial value after 180-day period. Another alteration under silicate system contacting hardened cement and compacted bentonite was accompanied by mineralogical changes at the interface and a decrease in the diffusivity to 71% of the initial value after 600-day period. The changes in the diffusivity were much less than those observed for mixed specimens of granulated hardened cement and bentonite where the diffusivity decreased down to 20% of the initial value over 180 days. The results were extrapolated to 15 years under simple assumptions and showed good agreement with those observed in the cement-argillite interface at Tournemire URL. Such an explanation enhances our confidence in our assessment of alteration of cement-bentonite systems and can be a base for using our data and models in long term assessment of radioactive waste disposal.

Neutron diffraction under high pressure and implications for Earth sciences

Sano, Asami

no journal, , 

Hydrogen is one of the key components of the Earth. The neutron scattering which has an advantage in detecting the hydrogen hence can become a powerful tool in the Earth science. The pressure and temperature increase with depth and approach around 14 GPa and 1400$$^{circ}$$C at the base of the upper mantle of 410 km. The difficulty of the neutron scattering experiment under such extreme conditions comes from the trade-off between pressure and the sample volume. The beamline PLANET in MLF, J-PARC aims to provide platform of neutron powder diffraction under high pressure. This is the first neutron beamline with a multi-anvil press. The large volume press that can compress the sample to over 12 GPa with the volume of approximately 50 mm$$^{3}$$ allows us to measure the powder diffraction in-situ under upper mantle conditions. The crystallographic information of minerals including hydrogen poCsition provides fundamental understanding of its properties.
