This paper reports the90Sr and137Cs distribution measured in 1987, 1989 and 1990 along a soil profile in a grassland, located in the North of Italy. The vertical distribution of137Cs in soil due to the Chernobyl accident was used to validate the RABES (RAdionuclides BEhaviour in Soil) model (Velasco et al., 1991). © 1993.
