Monitoring systems have been constructed to measure the net additional dose rate contributed by a nuclear plant. These systems compensate for the higher dose rate due to an increase in the natural background during rainfall or from formation of an inversion layer. The systems are simple, consisting of only four instruments; a NaI detector, a dose-rate-conversion unit to convert the distribution of pulse heights to dose rate, and two single-channel analyzers. These systems, called NaITSCA… CONTINUE READING
