Mapping daily rainfall/wet deposited radioactivity in the environment
The journal of Geographic Information and Decision Analysis (GIDA) published the accepted papers in a special issue (Vol. 2, No. 2). See http://www.geodec.org/gida_4.htm - link is broken, will be checked soon
A hardcopy version has been published in 2003 as a European Report and includes selected papers published online as well as unpublished material written by invited authors.
Hardcopies of the report (if still available) can be obtained from the publication office of the European Commission.
