heal.abstract The Megalopolis lignite field basin in southern Greece, with Megalopolis-A and B lignite-fired power plants in operation (total 900 MW), has been repeatedly investigated during the past 25 years by the Nuclear Engineering Section of the National Technical University of Athens (NES-NTUA). The present work aims at an integrated radioenvironmental approach leading to the dose assessment to the public and to the plants staff. This approach includes systematic sampling of lignite and barren at the local lignite mines feeding the power plants and sampling of lignite, fly-ash and bottom ash at the power plants for the determination of the activity of the natural radionuclides Ra-226, Th-231, K-40, Th-234, and Pb-210. Furthermore, the following measurements and samplings were conducted in 25 selected sites within 10 km around the power plants: soil sampling for the determination of the above radionuclides, radon concentration and exhalation rate measurements, soil gas radon concentration measurements, dose measurements and calculations, determination of air-particulate matter concentration, etc. The results obtained allowed for the mapping of the parameters studied which lead to useful conclusions. Dosimetric calculations for the population living around the power plants and the plants staff were also performed based on the guidance of UNSCEAR (1982 report). (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
