Abstract

This paper reports the extent of bioturbation of Cs 137 in six upland soils in southern Scotland. The first approach compares observed vertical distributions of Cs 137 with idealised Cs 137 profiles derived from a single negative exponential model. The second approach compares observed Cs 137 profiles with patterns exhibited by non-native pollen (NNP) from trees planted in a nearby arboretum, and by the industrial pollutants called spheroidal carbonaceous particles (SCPs). The causes and mechanisms of bioturbation were further investigated by soil micromorphology
