MONIT_RAD: Radiological monitoring of the Belgian Continental Shelf [Radiologisch toezicht op het Belgisch Continentaal Plat]
Contact: Remote Sensing and Ecosystem Modelling Team (IRScNB/KBIN-REMSEM), more

Description
Radiological monitoring on the Belgian part of the North Sea 'BPNS' in the frame of national and international obligations. Survey in the vicinity of the Franco-Belgian border; influence of aquatic releases from foreign nuclear sites on the marine environment; influence on the food chain. Radioactivity measurements on 25 fishes, 20 water samples (5 areas, 4x/y) and 20 sediment samples (5 areas, 4x/y). Measurements: alpha spectrometry (fish), gamma spectrometry (fish, water and sediment), alpha- and beta-activity, K-40 (water). Programme in the frame of the Belgian Federal Agency of Nuclear Control. (FANC).
