Abstract

This proceedings publication consists of a collection of papers originally presented at the Recent Applications and Developments in Mobile and Airborne Gamma Spectrometry (RADMAGS) international symposium held in Stirling in 1998. The meeting concerned measuring of environmental radioactivity by radiometrics, in a manner that delivers spatial densities, which are hard to achieve through other means. The range of topics, covering recent applications and developments in the field of AGS and mobile monitoring systems, was wide. Over forty papers were presented reflecting a diverse range of topics which included: mapping the radioactive background, system developments, spectrometric methods, environmental applications and surveys, surveys of nuclear sites, source terms for emergency response, emergency exercises, calibration and standardisation, and intercomparison studies.

This publication represents the majority of the papers presented at the symposium. Short summaries of the remainder have been included in annexes together with a European bibliography. These contributions will be of interest to radiometrics experts, environmental radioactivity researchers, nuclear operators and regulators, radiation protection authorities and emergency response planners at an international level.
