As the spring ends, on the threshold of the beginning of fieldworks a specific attention is paid to preparation for the expeditions: the workscope is being determined, trips are planned and the equipment is being prepared. However, all this is hardly related to the laboratories for radionuclides analysis of the branch «Institute of Radiation Safety and Ecology» of the NNC RK, those irrespectively of the season slowly but steadily handle hundreds of environmental samples.
Routine analyses virtually do not stop. And the present time is not an exception. We steel carry out gamma-spectrometric analysis with associated calibrations, background measurements, filling up Dewar vessels with liquid nitrogen. Works are performed on radiochemical preparation of samples for alpha- and beta-spectrometric measurements. So, generally speaking Говоря в общем и в целом – «All quiet on the western front.
