Radioecological Monitoring to the South Caucasus' Rivers as a Tool for Early Warning System
This paper highlights research data on river water radioactivity and radionuclide composition for 2006 obtained for Armenia's section of Rivers Kura-Araks basin. The research outcomes evidenced low radioactivity of the studied river waters. For the entire studied period, radionuclide composition was dominated by naturally occurring 40K and 226Ra.
