Abstract

The technical feasibility for exchanging radiological data on a voluntary basis is being determined. The JRC-Ispra provides the data exchange platform EURDEP (data capture and transmission) and coordinates the communication test exercises. In a first phase a common data format, based on the existing national data formats, is being established by which radiological data (gamma dose rate and continuous aerosol measurements) can be exchanged. The European network that will provide the information consists of existing automatic monitoring stations on a 100 x 100 km grid.

From January 1995 onwards, various contact points have been successively contacted to exchange radiological data with the JRC. Besides an introduction to the background and objectives of EURDEP, also the experience gained so far in using different communication procedures is discussed in the paper. .
