Radioecological survey at selected sites hit by depleted uranium ammunitions during the 1999 Kosovo conflict



Radioecological survey at selected sites hit by depleted uranium ammunitions during the 1999 Kosovo conflict



Science of the Total Environment 281(1/3): 23-35



A field study, organized, coordinated and conducted under the responsibility of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), took place in Kosovo, Serbia in November 2000 to evaluate the level of depleted uranium (DU) released into the environment by the use of DU ammunition during the 1999 conflict. Representatives of six different scientific organizations took part in the mission and a total of approximately 350 samples were collected.
