Wine Authentication How to use radioactivity to authenticate a vintage Large quantities of artificial radionuclides from the fission of uranium were released into the atmosphere during the atmospheric nuclear tests of the s and s. Today, there remain only radioelements having a long radioactive period such as caesium Cs with a half-life of 30 years.
Since the nuclear tests, this caesium was deposited over time more or less evenly throughout the globe and in particularly on the vines. It is normal to find traces of Cs on the grapes and therefore in the wine. However, the corresponding level of radioactivity is extremely low, about 0.

May 12, · Cesium is generally present as a cation (Cs +) and can be strongly adsorbed by sediments. In order to further our understanding of the chemical behavior of I and Cs in groundwater systems, a series of laboratory and field experiments were undertaken.

Using cesium-137 to quantify sediment source contribution and uncertainty in a small watershed
Page Share Cite Suggested Citation: The National Academies Press. The results, when com- bined with measurements of particle-associated pollutants, such as PCBs, chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides, and trace metals, provide information on the sources, transport, dis- tribution, history, and fate of these contaminants. This technique has proven quite useful for monitoring contaminant levels in natural water systems and assessing the effect of various remedial actions, particularly the “no-action” alter- native.
Our work on contaminated Hudson River sediments has relied primar- ily on measurements of a few naturally occurring and man-made radio- nuclides that have a high affinity for fine-grained particles and thus serve as tracers for both recent sediment and sediment-associated pol- lutant accumulation.
Each cm core spanned ca. years of sediment accumulation according to Cs dating and was sectioned into layers 1–4 cm thick. We examined a full suite of biogeochemical parameters and used DNA metabarcoding to examine community composition of microbial Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukaryota.
In the article, I briefly mentioned one technique that collectors and appraisers have used to authenticate rare bottles: In particular, searching for trace amounts of cesium —a radioactive isotope that was released during nuclear weapons tests—can help resolve whether a wine was bottled before or after the mid th-century advent of such technology.

I figured the idea of using radioactive dating to analyze wine science! Bill Koch of Koch brothers fame once enlisted a retired FBI agent to travel to a remote section of the Alps, where he could get his alleged Jeffersonian wine bottle tested for cesium by a French physicist. But when I got an annotated draft back from my editor, I saw she had just one note on the section: It comes from nuclear testing and resides in the soil, getting into plants and their fruit through the roots.
In the case of wine, the small amount of cesium that finds its way into grapes gets trapped in the liquid during the bottling process. So it’s not quite that your wine is dangerously radioactive, but rather that it contains trace amounts of radioactive isotopes. But then, so do bananas. What’s amazing is that these tiny amounts of radioactivity as well as rare-earth elements can be used to help pinpoint both when and where the liquid in a bottle was made.

A team of researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and Japan’s Kanazawa University found unusually high levels of radioactive cesium in the groundwater beneath several beaches. Because the levels are higher than samples from other radioactive sources, including samples collected from the harbor of the nuclear power plant, scientists hypothesize the cesium was carried by currents and absorbed by sands shortly after the meltdown.
Another recent survey suggests Fukushima has continued to leak low levels of cesium into the ocean over the past few years, but the amounts are too small to account for the heightened levels found in the groundwater beneath local beaches. Sanial and her colleagues hypothesize that brackish water and layers of sand have kept the concentrations of cesium hidden beneath the beaches. Researchers discovered the unusual radioactive source while drilling and testing sediment cores from nearby beaches.
According to their analysis — detailed in a new paper published this week in the journal PNAS — the sand and water are beginning to release the cesium back into the ocean. In brackish and freshwater, the cesium atoms cling to sand grains. But saltier water causes the atoms to be released.
Notes of nuclear? Fukushima radioactivity found in California wine
Tweet NaturalNews It has been almost three years, and Fukushima continues to endanger the biosphere. A study published in the October Journal of Environmental Radioactivity on the effects of the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant disaster in marine life confirms that radioactive cesium is continuing to be concentrated in the Pacific Ocean’s aquatic food chain.
While cesium has a half-life of just over two years, cesium ‘s half life is over 30 years. Although the radioactive concentrations found differ amongst various types of ocean life, in the years following the disaster, researchers have continued to frequently detect cesium and cesium concentrations above the set regulatory limit of becquerels per kilogram.
Sixty-three different species in and 41 species in were found to exceed radioactive cesium levels in this study, and the main source of cesium appears to be detritus within ocean sediment.
To provide reliable dating models for these cores, careful site selection was coupled with a combination of lead, cesium, magnetics, and pollen analyses. Once dating models were established for the floodplain wetland cores, sediment diatom communities were analyzed with decadal scale resolution for the past years.
Jefferson was the “leading wine connoisseur of the Republic, the presiding expert in French wine in this country,” Stanton says. He ordered wine for George Washington, and he wrote out descriptions of the first growths and best wines in France for a number of American merchants. He was also a meticulous record keeper who recorded every aspect of his life in detail. When he returned from France he had the wines he’d purchased for himself and President Washington carefully shipped to the U.
According to his detailed books, they all arrived intact, she says. In the so-called Jefferson bottles, there were about a dozen bottles including a and a Chateaux d’Yquem, a Lafite, a Margaux. Most of them were , a vintage Jefferson never ordered in his life.
The air concentrations listed above are very significant for two reasons: The antiquated equipment still in use in the United States has a limit of detection LOD two orders of magnitude higher than the Finnish air filters which routinely measure air contamination in millionths of a becquerel per cubic meter of air. These seemingly insignificant pre-Chernobyl air concentrations provide an important baseline for evaluating the significance of the Chernobyl plume which would soon pass over Finland.

PHASE II INVESTIGATION OF SEDIMENT CONTAMINATION IN WHITE LAKE BY Dr. Richard Rediske Dr. Michael Chu Dr. Don Uzarski Jeff Auch R. B. Annis Water Resources Institute Grand Valley State University W. Shoreline Dr.
August 18, An international research team reports results of a three-year study of sediment samples collected offshore from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in a new paper published August 18, , in the American Chemical Society’s journal, Environmental Science and Technology. The research aids in understanding what happens to Fukushima contaminants after they are buried on the seafloor off coastal Japan.
Led by Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist and marine chemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution WHOI , the team found that a small fraction of contaminated seafloor sediments off Fukushima are moved offshore by typhoons that resuspend radioactive particles in the water, which then travel laterally with southeasterly currents into the Pacific Ocean. Researchers deployed the pre-programmed, funnel-shaped instruments kilometers approximately 70 miles southeast of the nuclear power plant at depths of meters 1, feet and 1, meters 3, feet.
The two traps began collecting samples on July 19, — days after the March 11th earthquake and tsunami—and were recovered and reset annually. After analyzing the data, researchers found radiocesium from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in the sediment samples along with a high fraction of clay material, which is characteristic of shelf and slope sediments suggesting a near shore source.
But what this study clearly shows is that the only place that the material in our sediment traps could have come from was the continental shelf and slope buried nearshore. We know this because the coastal sediments from the shelf have a unique Fukushima radioactive and mineral signal,” says Buesseler. The data also revealed that peak movements of the sediments with radiocesium coincided with passing typhoons which likely triggered the resuspension of coastal sediments.
Radiocesium was still detected in sediment samples from July One percent or less of the contaminated sediment that’s moving offshore every year means things aren’t going to change very fast,” Buesseler says. And that’s what may be contributing to elevated levels of cesium in fish—particularly bottom-dwelling fish off Japan. Cesium has a half-life of a little over two years, and so any found in the ocean could come only from the reactors at Fukushima.

What Do You Mean, My Wine Is Radioactive?
Chemistry in its element: End promo This week, love at first sight. Peter Wothers I’ve been asked on a number of occasions what my favourite element is.
Beaches found releasing radioactive cesium into ocean 60 miles from Fukushima “It is as if the sands acted as a ‘sponge’ that was contaminated in and is only slowly being depleted,” said WHO.
It has hurt the river for decades. Scientists want to know the source of the sediment so it can be controlled. The remains from nuclear fallout can help them do it. Sediment is fine soil particles. If left unchecked, it can choke a river and disrupt its food chain. Sediment-filled water is harder and more expensive to clean for drinking, too. In , it was listed as a sediment-impaired river. Many rivers in the Southeast suffer the same fate, said David Radcliffe, a soil scientist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
This will be the first time the technique, more commonly used in Europe, has been used in the Southeast. And a key to the technique left its print on the earth decades ago. Nuclear testing in the s released cesium into the atmosphere. This radioactive isotope settled over the entire world and attached to soil. But it went no deeper than a few inches below the surface.
Over the next three years, Radcliffe will collect 1, samples, or fingerprints, in and around the North Fork Broad River during stormy and fair weather.
