Cover not present RECONSTRUCTION OF 131I RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION DYNAMICS IN BELARUS DUE TO CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT USING ATMOSPHERIC TRANSPORT MODELLING
Category: Number 16
Publication: 16
Summary

The calculations of 131I radioactive contamination in the 3 most contaminated regions of Belarus are carried out using the Lagrangian-Eulerian atmospheric transport LEDI model. Verification of the obtained results is made on the base of 131I activity measurements in soil of 534 settlements in Belarus during the ini-tial period of the accident. The input of radionuclides wet deposition processes due to rains and fogs has been evaluated in the period of radioactivity releases from the Chornobyl NPP.

Keywords: Chornobyl accident, atmospheric transport model, radioactive iodine, wet deposition.
