(Application note) Implementation of a comprehensive system for radiological control and monitoring on the coast
Coastal nuclear sites, be it civil or military, are all equipped with environmental radiation monitoring networks.
If radiation controls on the landward side are sufficient to guarantee a close area monitoring, most facilities lack radiation measuring equipment on the seaward side.
To improve radiation monitoring on the coast, Bertin Instruments designed an autonomous station for marine radioactivity monitoring, consisting of two probes (GammaTRACER XL2-2 and SpectroTRACER Aqua) mounted on a buoy (GISMAN GBM-2000).
