In this study, we present a chemical extraction procedure and an evaluation of storage and pH effects on the 129I concentration in water samples from a variety of hydrospheric reservoirs. Our data suggest that storage of samples does not cause a significant change of 129I concentration whereas acidification of samples causes increase of 129I concentration. A compilation of other AMS published data and ours on 129I in the hydrosphere shows a wide range of variability.
