Baku. Ramiz Mikayiloghlu – APA. Azerbaijan has started establishing a strong gamma-radiation complex, said director of ANAS Institute of Radiation Problems Adil Garibov addressing the meeting on the outcomes of 2013 of the Institute of Mathematics and Technical Sciences and organizations of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS), APA reports.

Adil Garibov said that works are underway to draw the background radiation map of Azerbaijan. He also noted that an agency on regulation of radiological and nuclear activity is functioning under the Ministry of Emergency Situations: “Large funds are required to draw the background radiation map. Minister of Emergency Situations Kemaleddin Heydarov raised the development of the background radiation map of Azerbaijan at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Both aerial and surface filming should be made in this regard. Measures are underway to draw this map, we are dealing with the scientific research. A representative of the Ministry of Emergency Situations has also met with ANAS President Akif Alizadeh,” he said.

Garibov said serious changes were observed in the glacier water after the quake in Shaki-Zagatala region. Garibov said its causes are being studied, noted that secret appeals regarding drinking water will be soon made to ANAS Presidium. He said radiation reached 100-150 micro-roentgen per hour in some regions of Azerbaijan.

“We will submit these materials to the relevant government agencies soon. What will happen if we make it public now? There is a village in Ardabil, where micro-roentgen per hour is 150 due to the ground water, but people there are very healthy, live at least 80 years,” he said.
