After the Chernobyl accident, the REM (Radioactivity Environmental Monitoring) programme was initiated at the Joint Research Centre of the CEC. The main aspects considered in REM are data handling, atmospheric modelling and data quality control related to radioactivity in the environment. These proceedings of the second REM workshop, held in December 1989, deal with real-time radioactivity monitoring and its interface with predictive atmospheric models. Atmospheric transport models, in applications extending over time scales of the order of a day or more, become progressively less reliable to the extent that an interface with real-time radiological field data becomes highly desirable. Through international arrangements for early exchange of information in the event of a nuclear accident, such data might become available on a quasi real-time basis. The question is how best to use such information to improve predictive capabilities. During the workshop this question was discussed and the present status of on-line monitoring networks for airborne radioactivity in the EC Member States was reviewed.
