Speciation of tritium (3Н) in soils from the "Balapan" site in Semipalatinsk are presented in this study. Three interrelated objects were chosen for further study: "Atomic" lake, the Shagan River and an external reservoir. The main speciation forms of 3Н in soil were: 3Н in surface-adsorbed water, 3Н in interlayer water, hydroxylic 3Н, organically bound 3Н and crystalline-bound 3Н.Results will allow an estimation of contamination mechanism to be made, and will also allow the potential for migration and bioavailability of 3Н to be assessed.
