Abstract

This study provides an improved background for the operational assessment of the radiation hazardous areas with induced radioactivity, based on the analysis of spectral characteristics of the neutron component of the penetrating radiation. The interrelationships between the nuclear munitions explosion parameters, environmental conditions and dosimetric characteristics of the secondary gamma-ray emission from the activated soil are analyzed. The interrelationships of these parameters are used in the methodology of the assessment of the dosimetric characteristics of the radiation hazardous areas.
