Paper Abstract

Some aspects of a new method of registrating radioactive ejections to the atmosphere from, for instance, nuclear power stations are discussed. The method based on the remote dejection of the optical flourescence of the air ionized by the radionuclides of the ejections. We propose to detect the three blue optical emission bands from the highly ionized molecules of oxygen. This will provide reliable selection of the ejection radiation from the radiation of other natural or artificial sources. The apparatus for remote detection of the regular ejections from nuclear power stations for the purpose of experimental testing the new method is developed in the framework of the proposal for International Science and Technology Center number 1240 'Development of the optical method of the remote registration of radioactive air ejections'.
