  • Abstract. In the late 1940s and early 1950s the nuclear workers of the Mayak Production Association in the Southern Urals were exposed to high doses from γ-rays and from incorporated plutonium. In addition, the population of the Techa riverside downstream of the plutonium-production sites received continued exposures from external γ-rays due to fission products released into the river and from the internal radiation due to incorporation of the fission products. Based on two international… CONTINUE READING
