Abstract129I, 236U, 239Pu and 240Pu isotopes have been analyzed in the different layers of a peatbog core collected in Madagascar Island (South Hemisphere) and representing at least the last 100 years of atmospheric deposition. The determination of ultra-low levels of these isotopes has been possible by applying the Accelerator Mass Spectrometric Technique (AMS) by using the 1 MV Tandetrom AMS facility located at CNA (Seville, Spain). The elements of interest were extracted and isolated previous to the measurements by applying validated radiochemical procedures. In this contribution, the behavior along the core of the different isotopes under analysis will be discussed, evaluating in particular the magnitude of their post-depositional retention/migration. In this sense, it will be highlighted the great mobility of the 129I with a near uniform profile along the core, in opposition for example with the preservation for the Pu isotopes of the fallout bomb peak. In the case of 236U, the 236U/239Pu atomic ratios determined in a total of eight layers of the core are ranging in the interval 0.02 – 0.29 with an average value of 0.15. As far as we know, these are the first 236U results seeing the light that were obtained in deposits as peatbogs collected in the southern hemisphere.
