Carbon-14 levels in the vicinity of the Lithuanian nuclear power plant Ignalina
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Carbon-14 levels in the vicinity of the Lithuanian nuclear power plant Ignalina have been investigated. During 2001-2004, approximately 70 samples were collected and analysed using accelerator mass spectrometry. The study included samples of leaves, grass, moss, soil and aquatic plants, covering a distance up to 32 km from the power plant. The highest C-14 specific activities were found in soil samples from moss-covered sites close to the power plant, probably indicating the release of particulate material. The results are compared with those from studies around other types of reactors also investigated within the project. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
