Abstract

The formation, fate and transport of the radioactive contamination of Belarussian rivers due to the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is discussed in this manuscript. A review of the data obtained from the monitoring of the area by Belarussian, Ukrainian and Russian Institutes is presented. Of all the extensive sets of data, we present in particular the results related to the Iput river monitoring. On the basis of monitoring data, we analyze the fate and transport of Cs137 and Sr90 in the Dnieper-Sozh river system and present computations on the transport of radionuclides in the Iput river. These calculations were made using the HEC-R-6 model. Details of model calibration and validation are also presented.
