Measurements of 106Ru in Sweden during the autumn 2017: Gamma-ray spectrometric measurements of air filters, precipitation and soil samples, and in situ gamma-ray spectrometry measurement
Journal article, 2018

During the last days of September to the first days of October in 2017, a unique detection of106Ru was observed in air filters sampled at different locations in Sweden via the national air monitoring network. Furthermore, measurements of precipitation also showed the presence of106Ru. This initiated soil sampling and in situ gamma-ray spectrometry at one of the locations.
