Article title

In situ study of the 41Ar plume released from the Ignalina NPP


Title variants

Languages of publication



The 41Ar gamma ray radiation was registered using the in situ method in the vicinity of the Ignalina nuclear power plant (NPP). The sum of gamma rays, that are reaching the HPGe detector, situated along the wind direction, from a number of plume segments and which are registered in the energy range of about 1.29 MeV, is calculated. An independent technological regime of the operating reactor method of the determination of the 41Ar emission rate from NPP stack is introduced.
