Abstract. The dataset “Spatial radionuclide deposition data from the 60 km area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant: results from a sampling survey in 1987” is the latest in a series of data to be published by the Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC) describing samples collected and analysed following the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in 1986. The data result from a survey carried out by the Ukrainian Institute of Agricultural Radiology (UIAR) in April and May 1987 and include information on sample sites, dose rate, radionuclide (zirconium-95, niobium-95, ruthenium-106, caesium-134, caesium-137 and cerium-144) deposition, and exchangeable caesium-134 and 137.

The purpose of this paper is to describe the available data and methodology used to obtain them. The data will be useful in the reconstruction of doses to human and wildlife populations, answering the current lack of scientific consensus on the effects of radiation on wildlife in the Chernobyl Exclusion zone and in evaluating future management options for Chernobyl impacted area of Ukraine and Belarus.

Short summary
Sampling methodology and spatial radionuclide deposition data from the 60 km area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant sampled in 1987 by the Ukrainian Institute of Agricultural Radiology. Useful in the reconstruction of doses to human and wildlife populations, answering the current lack of scientific consensus on the effects of radiation on wildlife in the Chernobyl Exclusion zone and in evaluating future management options for Chernobyl impacted area of Ukraine and Belarus.
