Field gamma ray spectrometry and soil sample measurements in Sweden following the Chernobyl accident. A data report

Technical Report:

Abstract

The airborne radioactive material from the Chernobyl accident reached Sweden on 27 April 1986. In situ measurements were started by the Nuclear Detection Group of the National Defence Research Establishment (FOA 212) on 28 April 1986. Two high-resolution gamma-spectrometric systems were available for the project and it was decided to use one for mobile measurements in order to cove the affected part of Sweden whereas the other was used to follow the rate of change at one location in the Stockholm area. The radioactive deposition in Sweden mainly occurred in two periods, the first from 27th to 29th of April and the second from the 7th to 10th of May. In the first period the most affected regions were the eastern and central parts of Sweden, in particular the wet-deposition area along the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia and westwards to the mountain regions in Northern Sweden. During the second period, the deposition levels were much lower and mainly affecting the Southern and Southwestern parts of Sweden. Some results of the in situ and soil gamma measurements have been reported earlier (Edvarson 1989, 1991). In this report the results from measurement in the years 1986 to 1988 are reported.  More>>
