Abstract

Data from multiyear observations are generalized and a comparative analysis is made of the influence of salvaging and repair of nuclear-powered submarines on the radiological conditions in Severodvinsk. The possible change in the radioecological conditions as a result of an increase in salvaging at the plants in Severodvinsk is estimated. Analysis shows that with an increase in the salvaging volumes by a factor of 5 the contamination by 2010 will not exceed 0.001% MAC. Taking account of all negative factors, the additional dose load will not exceed 5 μSv/yr, which is less than 0.1% of the natural radiation background and does not present any radiation danger.
