Cs-137 is an important fission product that is produced in the nuclear reactors. Therefore it can create risk for the environment during the accident condition of the nuclear plants. In this study, vertical transportation of Cs-137 in the soil searched for three different soil types and three different raining regimes. The experiments observed in lyzimetric conditions in the laboratory. The results of the experiments show that in every raining regime the activities of different types of soils (sand, loam and clay) were related with descending activity order. When the results of the experiments were evaluated according to the raining regime it can be seen that the relative activity for every type of soil is always towards higher to lower raining conditions.
