dc.description.abstractThis paper describes an equipment for continuous measurement and identification of gamma radioactivity in aerosols developed by the Nuclear Engineering Research Group (NERG) at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) and Raditel Serveis i Subministraments Tecnològics, Ltd. A spectrometric analysis code has been specially designed for it. Spectrum analysis identifies and determines activity concentration of aerosol emitters captured by a fiberglass paper filter. This new equipment is currently operating in three radioactivity monitoring stations of the Environmental Radiological Surveillance Network of the Generalitat of Catalunya (local Catalan government): two near Ascó and Vandellòs Nuclear Power Plants in the province of Tarragona and one in the city of Barcelona. Two more monitors are expected to be deployed at Roses, Girona, Spain, and Puigcerdà, Barcelona, Spain. Measurements and evolution analysis results of emitters identified at these stations were also provided.
