Abstract

Environmental dosemeters were benchmarked against various dosimetry systems in realistic environmental conditions. For the first time, the dosemeters, provided by two institutions from two different countries, were deployed at 20 sites in Slovenia and Croatia (near the Nuclear Power Plant, NPP Krško, Slovenia) during two semi-annual periods: summer-autumn and winter-spring. The results obtained using the different dosimetry systems show interesting features concerning local environmental peculiarities. The results of the intercomparison demonstrate an excellent agreement of the ambient doses measured independently by two different institutions and three passive dosimetry systems. Such consistency is crucial for the environmental dosimetry.
