    Research outputpeer-review


    An experimental study of radionuclide dispersion has been conducted at the BR1 research reactor in Mol, Belgium. Artificially generated aerosols were mixed with routine releases of Argon-41. The detailed plume geometry was measured with remote sensing, while surface radiation levels were determined using gamma detectors.
