Abstract: After the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident, European countries have further enhanced their capacity and infrastructure for monitoring radioactivity in their environment. This paper gives a summary of the most commonly used tech-niques relevant to routine and nuclear and/or radiological emergency conditions, fol-lowed by a discussion of the various network types (routine, emergency preparedness, mobile monitoring) and some suggestions on how homogeneity of the monitoring in-formation can be improved. Keywords: Measurement strategy, radiation measurements, air contamination meas-urement, in situ measurements, surface contamination sampling, environmental sam-pling.
