- Factors controlling mobility of 127I and 129I species in an acidic groundwater plume at the Savannah River SiteShigeyoshi Otosaka
Laboratory for Oceanographic and Environmental Research, Department of Marine Sciences, Texas A and M University, Building 3029, 200 Seawolf Parkway, Galveston, TX 77553, USA
Sci Total Environ 409:3857-65. 2011..We concluded that removal of iodine from the groundwater through the formation of high molecular weight organo-iodine species is complicated by the release of other more mobile organo-iodine species in the groundwater...

Research Group for Environmental Science, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Tokai mura, Ibaraki, Japan
Environ Monit Assess 185:5419-33. 2013..These results indicate that radiocesium-enriched fine particles were transported from the coast to offshore regions through the bottom high-turbidity layer...
- Anthropogenic radionuclides in sediment in the Japan Sea: distribution and transport processes of particulate radionuclidesS Otosaka
Marine Research Laboratory, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, 4 24, Minato Machi, Mutsu, Aomori, Japan
J Environ Radioact 91:128-45. 2006..In the southern Japan Sea, observations suggested that supply of particulate radionuclides by the Tsushima Warm Current mainly enhanced accumulation of the radionuclides in this region...
