Agricultural Countermeasures in the Nordic Countries after a Nuclear Accident
Bent Lauritzen, Magnus Brink
This report by the NKS/BOK-1.4 project group describes agricultural countermeasures after a nuclear accident, aiming at the reduction of radiation doses to man from the
ingestion of foodstuffs. The intention has been to collect information based on common understanding that can be used as a Nordic handbook and in further developments of
the national preparedness systems. The report covers two areas: the gathering and dissemination of information before and during a nuclear emergency, and the development of a countermeasures strategy. A number of factors are discussed, which will affect the choice of countermeasure(s), and as a case study, a technical costbenefit
assessment of a specific countermeasure is described.
