Report Title:Emergency Monitoring Strategy and Radiation Measurements. Working Document of the NKS Project Emergency Management and Radiation Monitoring in Nuclear and Radiological Accidents (EMARAD).
Activity Acronym:EMARAD
Authors:Juhani Lahtinen
Abstract:This report is one of the deliverables of the NKS Project Emergency management and radiation monitoring in nuclear and radiological accidents (EMARAD) (2002–2005). The project and the overall results are briefly described in the NKS publication “Emergency Management and Radiation Monitoring in Nuclear and Radiological Accidents. Summary Report on the NKS Project EMARAD” (NKS-137, April 2006). In a nuclear or radiological emergency, all radiation measurements must be performed efficiently and the results interpreted correctly in order to provide the decision-makers with adequate data needed in analysing the situation and carrying out countermeasures. Managing measurements in different situations in a proper way requires the existence of pre-prepared emergency monitoring strategies. Preparing a comprehensive yet versatile strategy is not an easy task to perform because there are lots of different factors that have to be taken into account. The primary objective of this study was to discuss the general problematics concerning emergency monitoring strategies and to describe a few important features of an efficient emergency monitoring system as well as factors affecting measurement activities in practise. Some information concerning the current situation in the Nordic countries has also been included.
Keywords:Emergency preparedness; Radiation monitoring strategy; Emergency measurements.
