The aim of this report is to describe the preparation of a data set on radiological measurements in air and fall out in the period immediately following the Chernobyl accident. This data set is to serve as the reference data for the IAEA-WMO-CEC exercise on long range transport models. Data were extracted from written reports or were copied directly from tapes or diskettes into the data banks. In the latter case, data are only accepted if they can be traced back to written reports. In some instances direct contacts have been made with the laboratories to clarify sampling procedures such as time and duration of sampling and total or particulate iodine. No validation of the actual measured values has been performed till now.
