ABSTRACT

This paper presents the results of radioecological monitoring of Braslav lakes in the zone of influence of Ignalina NPP. The presence of Co-60 with activity 181−392 Bk/kg was noted in bottom sediments of the central part of Driswiyatie Lake. The maximum of Cs-137 activity of water registered for Boginskoe Lake was 0.3 Bk/L. The accumulation of Sr-90 and Cs-137 by the aquatic inhabitants (clams, fishes, and aquatic vegetation) was studied.
