This caused the emissions to be decreased substantially for a few days; however, the blanketing of the core led to increased temperatures and a further release peak from May 1 to 5. Emissions were terminated on May 6 upon pumping a nitrogen coolant through tunnels constructed under the core [30]. At the end of the 10-day release period following the accident, some 2×1018 Bq of activity was present in the environment. 7 × 1016 Bq 137Cs) and about 3% of rare earths and actinides. 5% to 2% landed within 20 km, and the remainder was dispersed beyond 20 km.

Nuclear power plant accidents are the first in the following list of causes of nuclear radiation emergencies: • Nuclear power plant accidents (Three Mile Island, Chernobyl). • Nuclear materials processing plant accidents (Tokaimura, Japan). , radioactive waste from hospitals, spent fuel and • • • • radioactive waste from nuclear power plants, radioactive contaminated materials) storage or processing facilities accidents. Nuclear waste transport truck or train accidents. , trucks, planes, trains, couriers).

However, it was not until the development of large-scale radiation sources, both radioisotopes and machines, in the 1950s that industrial scale radiation processing became a practical reality. , the polymer and medical device industries). One of the principal advantages of ionizing radiation as an industrial tool is the ability to achieve precise chemical and biological effects by the delivery of known doses of radiation. Accurate dosimetry has always been an important component of industrial radiation processing; the high doses and dose rates involved provide particular challenges.
