Webinar on Chernobyl Wildfires of April 2020
Wednesday 28th May 2020 (15:00-16:30) organized by the European Platform on Preparedness for Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Response and Recovery (NERIS) platform.
On April 2020 wildfires were reported in the exclusion zone around the damaged Chernobyl nuclear reactor. The report smade by several institutions on the assessments of the situation after the wildfires will be presented and discussed. Please find further details here and the registration link.
RICOMET 2020 Online Conference

Human aspects of nuclear safety: Challenges of the COVID‑19 pandemic. Special workshop.
On 9 April 2020, the NEA convened a workshop to discuss the human and organisational factors challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The current COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on the workforce around the world: from how people carry out their work under necessary social distancing rules to the unavailability of workers due to sickness or taking care of others. The nuclear workforce must adapt in the short and long term to ensure the safe and reliable generation of nuclear energy around the world. NEA Director-General William D. Magwood, IV moderated the discussion, opening with Suzanne Dolecki, Chair of the NEA Working Group on Human and Organisational Factors. To watch, visit this link.
Papers from IABERD members
A new approach for estimating exposures in radiation incidents or accidents using geolocated dosimetry data was presented in this paper:
Rogan P, Mucaki E, Lu R, Shirley B, Waller E, and Knoll J. Meeting radiation dosimetry capacity requirements of population-scale exposures with geostatistical sampling, PLoS ONE, 2020.
The article is Open Access and contains links to an online protocol and a data repository.
Papers of relevance
A Eurados review of retrospective dosimetry techniques for internal exposures to ionising radiation and their applications has just been published on Radiation and Environmental Biophysics. The paper is open access.
ICRU has issue a new Publication: ICRU Report 94 “Methods for Initial-Phase Assessment of Individual Doses Following Acute Exposures to Ionizing Radiation” It is a joint ICRU-EURADOS Report and it can be purchased at this link.
