ABSTRACT

Radiological Incident Response: Establishing a Temporary Storage Site for Contaminated Material   [open pdf - 89KB]

"In September 1987, an accidental release of Cesium-137 (Cs-137) in Goiânia, Brazil, caused the second largest nuclear accident after Chernobyl. Goiânia's decontamination created approximately 40 tons of radioactive waste material. Brazilian authorities had to establish a temporary storage site for radiologically contaminated materials from the beginning of incident response."
