Time evolution of the airborne radioactivity in Řež related to the activity release rate in Chernobyl


The airborne radioactivity in Řež near Prague has been investigat'ed after the Chernobyl accident. The nuclide composition was determined. The evolution of the activity ratio of selected radionuclides to caesium in air was obtained. It has been supposed that this evolution may be related to differences in the release rate of various radionuclides during the accident as well as to the meteorological situation at the Chernobyl site.
