Computation of radiation power from standard radioactive emissions of radiochemical plant at frequencies of 1420 and 1665–1667 MHz


A radiation power of an emission plume from the Radiochemical Plant (RCP) of the Siberian Chemical Combine, as an example, was theoretically calculated at 1420 and 1665–1667 MHz. Experimental and theoretical data on the radiation power of an RCP plume were compared, as well as radiation powers of plumes from RCP and the nuclear power plant (NPP).
