Report Title:NKS/SRV Seminar on Barents Rescue 2001 LIVEX. Gamma Search Cell
Activity Acronym:BOK-1
Authors:Thomas Ulvsand, Bent Lauritzen, Robert R. Finck
Abstract:Proceedings of the NKS/Barents Rescue 2001 LIVEX seminar, held at Rosersberg Castle, Stockholm, on October 23-24, 2001. At the seminar, results from the Gamma Search Cell of the Barents Rescue 2001 LIVEX were presented and the performance and experiences of airborne and car-borne teams that took part in the exercise were evaluated. In the Gamma Search Cell, the mobile teams found about 50 % of a large number of radioactive sources hidden within the exercise area. The exercise demonstrated that it is necessary to practise and test equipment under out-door conditions. By which method a source is found is important information in the evaluation of the result. Complementary methods are necessary to find hidden sources. For heavily shielded sources methods based on scattered radiation should be developed.
