Keywords:Apparent diffusion coefficient, Cs, Sr, Dry carbonated, Seawater

Cs is firmly adsorbed in certain river gravels, and Sr is fixed by substitution with Ca in the concrete, retarding infiltration into the concrete by different mechanisms. Considering the real contamination situation of the underground structure at Fukushima Daiichi, mortar or concrete with a carbonated and dry surface layer was exposed to seawater for one day, and then to contaminated water mixed with seawater for two months or one year, and the penetration profile was evaluated using imaging plates. Compared to penetration from simple chloride solutions into non-carbonated saturated mortar, Cs penetration was retarded and Sr penetration was accelerated.
