The partitioning coefficient for the sediment compartment of 915 L/kg (log Kd = 2.96) represents the median of 757 paired stream water and sediment samples taken on a grid across Europe within the FOREGS monitoring program (Salminen et al. 2005). The soil-water partitioning coeficient of 65 L/kg (log Kd = 1.81) represents median of different literature values (Bunzl and Schimmack, 1989; Kamei-Ishikawa et al., 2008; Twinning et al., 2004;Wang and Staunton, 2005; Sheppard and Thibault,1990). The Kd values for water/sediment and water/soil indicate a low potential of strontium to partition into sediment or soil.
