    Long lived fission products might be deposited in the environment after a serious reactor accident. At Risø we have studied how Danish weather conditions and fire hosing influence the decontamination of Rubidiunt86 (representing Cesium134 and Cesium137) deposited on concrete surfaces. Measurements have been made at two different types of concrete and at some asphalt surfaces for comparison.
