As a part of programme for investigating the pollution of the Danube and studying the behaviour of different pollutants introduced in the river, systematic investigations of the content of Cobalt-60 and inactive isotope have been carried out and their concentrations in water, suspended material, bed sediments, plankton and other components determined. The capture of cobalt by suspended particles and bed sediments has been studied. Results of field and laboratory experiments are presented.
