Environmental measurement techniques in case of incidents

    Research outputpeer-review


    The paper discusses the measurement techniques as developed in the context of the Belgian federal nuclear and radiological emergency plan. It explains how they are performed today by the mobile teams of the Civil Protection, the CBRN unit of Belgian Defense, IRE and SCK CEN, and complemented by aerial gamma spectrometry with helicopters and - more recently - drones. The paper addresses also the experience feedback from incidents and drills, and highlights the growing importance given to the training of the involved actors.
