Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This atlas provides a comprehensive reference of the deposition, over the whole territory of Europe, of radioactive material released during the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident. The many and diverse data on which the Atlas is based has been compiled in an electronic form and will be an important resource for further scientific work; in particular they will contribute to a better understanding of the complex processes of dispersion and deposition and to the optimization of environmental monitoring in the event of any future accident. The Atlas also provides much needed perspective for judging the current radiological significance of the deposition across Europe.
