Maps of Belarus radionuclide contamination after the Chernobyl accident

The Chernobyl nuclear power plant is located ten kilometers from the border with Belarus. This neighborhood has identified extremely high pollution southern areas of Belarus by radioactive materials that were released from the destroyed nuclear reactor in 1996.

Almost from the first day of the accident republic territory contaminated by fallout from that April 27 was extremely intense. By April 29 the wind bore radioactive dust from Chernobyl in Belarus and Russia.

Due to heavy contamination was evacuated 24,725 people from the Belarusian villages and three districts of the Republic of Belarus was declared mandatory exclusion zone. Today, April 2100. miles of the abandoned territories of Belarus, of which once was evacuated the entire population, organized Polessky State Radiation and Ecological Reserve.

To characterize the contamination of Belarus publish maps of radioactive fallout. The maps show the level of contamination in Belarus 137Cs.

The author of cartographic materials is MNF and the Ministry of the Republic of Belarus, which together produced “Atlas modern and prognostic aspects of consequences of the Chernobyl accident in the affected areas of Belarus and Russia.”
