Syrian Environmental Radiological Monitoring Program

The Syrian Atomic Energy commission, and through its tasks listed in its establishment law (No. 12/1976), especially what is stated in Article 2 and Paragraph B: determines the appropriate procedures for radiation protection and takes the necessary measures to reduce the dangers of radiation, in addition to setting rules and legislation to protect people and the environment from radiation sources. For this reason, the Commission continues to qualify specialists and experts in various scientific and preventive branches related to atomic energy and to put in place appropriate preventive measures and legislation to protect humans and the environment. It also strives to protect the environment and citizens in the Syrian Arab Republic from any radioactive contamination. In addition, the general regulations for the protection of ionizing radiation issued in 1999 indicated the need for a radiation control program and an emergency plan "certified by the Radiation and Nuclear Regulatory Office, which has full responsibility for preparing and activating the emergency plan" for each radiological practice or for the use of any radioactive materials, including the authority’s centers, well-measurements fields, non-destructive tests, irradiation centers, and places of tracers use and radioactive decontamination works.


seismic detection network

The Department of Geology is interested in studying the movement of plates, neotectonic activity, earthquakes and micro-earthquakes arising from these movements. This department has established a set of seismic monitoring stations distributed over specific sites to record small and large earthquakes, some of which are analogous and some are digital. All of them are linked to the tectonic activity along the main faults in Syria. Within this methodology, the department is concerned with the following:

1. Recording and interpreting earthquake activity levels and linking them to local tectonic activity in cooperation with national authorities.

2. Study of historical earthquakes.

3. Investigation of active tectonic along the main faults in Syria.

The department has recently developed an earthquakes catalog for Syria, and it will be published in the near future for the benefit of those interested in these sciences in their geological and geoengineering work.
