Short summary
REMdb was created in the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident (1986) by the European Commission. Since then it has been maintained with the aim to keep a historical record of the Chernobyl accident and to store the radioactivity monitoring data gathered through the national environmental monitoring programs of the European Union member states. To date, the total number of data records stored in REMdb exceeds 5 million, in this way providing a valuable archive for everyone.
