The spatial distribution of radionuclides within the loess cover was analysed by radiometric mapping and Rn soil gas measurements. Gamma spectrometric analyses (HPGe) and radon emanation measurements of samples indicate that radionuclides of the Th and U series coexist with K and their mineral system was closed long before loess sedimentation. They occur in plates of potassium mineral, biotite (with radioactive mineral inclusions) blown out from the adjacent hills. The only significant disequilibria are connected with 222Rn migration into soil indicated by excess of 210Pb. The Rn concentration can be explained recalculating the 226Ra content of the loess.
