By installing a Gamma Tracer (Genitron make) outside of a mobile vehicle, gamma radiation levels around KAPS up to 30 km distance were measured for a period of one year. The hourly averaged gamma radiation levels in all the routes of mobile vehicle in many occasions varied from 56 to 112 nGyh -1 , with an average of 77 nGyh -1 . The hourly averaged gamma radiation levels in all TLD stations were also found to be within this range. Since this data is comparable to preoperational data, the impact of operation of KAPS on the environment is negligible.
