N.V. TIMOFEEV-RESOVSKY CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF RADIOECOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL RADIOLOGICAL MONITORING METHODOLOGY

Abstract


The value of N.V. Timofeev-Resovsky’s works on radiation biogeocenology in environmental radiological monitoring evolution is considered in the article according to the results of historical and scientific analysis. Inspired with the ideas of V.I. Vernadsky’s theory of biosphere and V.N. Sukachev’s biogeocenology Timofeev-Resovsky formed his own unique biogeocenological experimental approach to studying of ionizing radiation impact to biogeocenoses and the biosphere. It is called as the radiation biogeocenology. Due to new methods and techniques it appears to be forerunner of modern radioecology. Timofeev-Resovsky’s observations, tests and experiments allowed him to make models of radionuclide migration in natural ecosystems and the biosphere. He was among the first to highlight the primary role of living organisms and the ecological and biological essence of environmental radiological monitoring.
