  1. Calculation of individual dose equivalents on the territory of eastern Slovakia after the Chernobyl accident.

    Article - En anglais

    The accident in the nuclear power plant at Chernobyl in the USSR resulted in the release of substantial quantities of radioactive material and remarkable increases in radioactivity in the environment in many European countries.

    For an estimation of the accident consequences to population both the individual and the collective dose equivalents must be calculated.

    This paper deals with the calculation of the individual dose equivalents to persons living in the territory of eastern Slovakia.

    The calculation is based on real activity concentration measurements of environmental samples.

    For children the value of the total committed effective dose equivalent was calculated as 1.20 mSv, for adults it was 0.31 mSv.
