Short summary
The data set ‘Post Chernobyl surveys of radiocaesium in soil, vegetation, wildlife and fungi in Great Britain’ was developed to enable data collected by the Natural Environment Research Council after the Chernobyl accident to be made publicly available. Data for samples collected between May 1986 (immediately after Chernobyl) to spring 1997 are freely available for non-commercial use under Open Government Licence terms and conditions. doi: 10.5285/d0a6a8bf-68f0-4935-8b43-4e597c3bf251.
