Migration and forecast of the radioactive contamination of the soil, water and air on the territory of Belarus after the accident at the Chernobyl NPP
[en]The accident at the Chernobyl NPP is the largest technogenic accident of our epoch, the global consequences of which for whole mankind with the course of time will larger and larger significance. In spite of the fact, that the radioactive contamination owing to the Chernobyl accident affected the whole world, just Belarus was subjected to the most intensive radioactive contamination. In addition the radioactive contamination territory of Belarus more than 37 kBq/sq.m. by caesium-137 has made 23% from the whole of the Republic. At the same time as a result of the Chernobyl accident, 5,0% of a territory of the Ukraine and 0,6 % of Russia have been contaminated with radionuclides
