Summary  

Radionuclide (137Cs, 238U, 232Th and 40K) concentrations were determined in a sediment trap and bottom sediment samples collected from a station at the eastern Turkish coast of the Black Sea. The specific activity of the 137Cs radionuclide in the settling particles ranged from 0.04±0.01 to 0.10±0.02 Bq. g-1dry weight. The calculated flux rate of the 137Cs was between 0.37 and 2.59 Bq. m-2. d-1in the sampling periods of 2002 and 2003. The 137Cs concentration in the bottom sediment profile were between 0.039±0.013-9.083±0.017 Bq. g-1dry weight in the same station. The vertical profile of the radionuclides suggests that they have little mobility during the 17 years after the Chernobyl accident.
