Abstract

The degree of migration activity of artificial radioactive substances in the environment is determined by the biogeochemical features of the landscape. The geochemical concept of monitoring of the environment, in particular its component part – radiation monitoring is presented. The main object of the final radioecological assessment of the territory should be the catchment basin with its individual set of landscape features, which determine the differences in the aqueous removal of radionuclides from different basins in the same climate zone. In this case, the catchment area is the ideal object to overcome the problems of discrete estimates related to the uneven pollution. Eleven principles of radiation monitoring have been formulated, including the justification of the list of controlled (level I) and forecast indicators of II-III levels, the ultimate goal of which is to determine the barrier stability of adjacent to radiation hazardous objects of territories. Barrier resistance is the indicator that combines individual elements of the environment or landscape in the chains: soil soil-forming rocks-underground waters; soil water-bearing rocks groundwater surface waters; soil surface water; air soil plants, etc. Chains with one major donor and one acceptor are simple, and systems that evaluate the complex barrier stability by the total barrier function of several components – complex.The main integrated indicators of the barrier resistance of the catchment and the protection of its water system must be the share and module of removal of the radionuclide from the catchment area and the nature of their changes in time. 

Keywords: radiation monitoring, factors, geochemical background, radionuclides water drainage, landscape, radiological indices, catchment basin, barrier resistance.
