[en]JAERI and RIAP concluded the ''Agreement on the Implementation of Research at the Chernobyl Center for International Research'' on 1992 aiming to analyze environmental radiological consequences in the Chernobyl areas. On the basis of this agreement JAERI has performed environmental research in some different phases in cooperation with RIAP. In this paper, results of measurements on external gamma-ray dose rates in residential areas around Chernobyl will be presented. Measurements have been made using portable dose rate meters to clarify the present radiation levels inside and outside houses in which people still live. Further, wider regions have been covered with carbon surveys. The radiation levels and characteristics found in these measurements will be discussed
