A compartmental modelling approach for several European freshwater ecosystem has been used to predict dynamically the concentrations of 137Cs in lake water and in food-chains. The predicted doses from 13'7Cs depositions have been further normalized, i.e. converted to dose per equal deposition for each freshwater environment considered. Improved confidence in the model predictions has been achieved through comparisons with the results of measurements carried out in several countries after the accident at the Chernobyl reactor.
