Short summary
After the Chernobyl accident in 1986 the European Commission has invested resources for developing and improving a complete system called the European Radiological Data Exchange Platform (EURDEP) to exchange real-time monitoring data to competent authorities and the public. We provide two complete datasets (air-concentration samples and gamma dose rates) for the recent radiological release of 106Ru in Europe, which occurred between the end of September and early October 2017.
