A large-scale international in situ intercomparaison measurements has been organized in the "Nord-Cotentin" (France) area, in the vicinity of la Hague reprocessing plant and the Nuclear power station of Flamanville. Eleven European countries participated in this event organized at the initiative of the local association "Les Mères en Colère".
Two main goals were considered for this event:
---------> An international in situ measurements intercomparison. The general aim of the measurements is to characterise as detailed as possible examined areas regarding their actual radiological standpoint. The basic measurements concerned dose rate, in situ gamma ray spectrometry and laboratory analyses on enviromnental samples.
---------> A specific aim consisting in providing the local population with an opportunity for direct exchange with international teams.
Both aspects will be reported in this paper.
