THE RADIOISOTOPES PROJECT IN CYPRUS

                        

                                                                                                            

 

Exploiting the infrastructure of the nuclear physics laboratory, we have carried out the project “Radioisotopes”, which aimed at systematically measuring the natural environmental  -radioactivity and the airborne indoor radon concentration in Cyprus. A natural -radioactivity map and a radon map of Cyprus have become available for the first time.

This project represents therefore a major contribution to the local society and enabled the harmonization of Cyprus to European Union common recommendations and rules concerning this sensible issue.
