The present work aims to improve the Soil and Cesium Transport (SACT) model, which has been developed for simulating radiocesium redistribution after the Fukushima accident. Two mechanisms, namely, vertical migration, and long-term fixation of radiocesium in soil have been newly implemented. Without parameter tuning, the new SACT model shows improved agreement with measurement results.
