Kyiv Streets’ Gamma Background is Within the Natural One
On April 17, the mobile laboratory of the State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety conducted a gamma survey in Kyiv. The need to go directly to the city streets arose due to reports from the Kyiv City State Administration about the presence of combustion products brought by wind from the Chornobyl zone, where the fire is being extinguished.
The crew of the mobile laboratory of radiation monitoring RanidSONNI measured the gamma background along the route: st.
