  1. Estimate of dose reduction effects due to countermeasures after the Chernobyl accident.

    Article - En anglais

    Various countermeasures introduced in Austria after the Chernobyl accident are compared and their effective dose reduction effects evaluated.

    As expected, the greatest reductions were obtained with countermeasures with regard to milk and directly contaminated food.

    Three of them (prohibition of sale of fresh vegetables, prohibition, of feeding cows on fresh grass and selection of low activity milk in dairies) accounted for more than 70% of the total reduction of exposure by all countermeasures.

    Other countermeasures contributed little to the reduction of exposure.
