Abstract: The results of the 1978 environmental survey program at the Australian Atomic Energy Commission Research Establishment (AAECRE) are presented. They show that the amounts of radioisotopes of AAECRE origin found in samples of environmental materials were not significantly different from the very small amounts found in previous years. The possible annual radiation dose to the hypothetical 'most highly exposed' member of the public, as calculated from the results, is less than one ten-thousandth of that considered acceptable by the NSW Health Commission and the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. Appendices show that the performances in respect to the State-approved discharge authorisations for liquid and gaseous effluents were very satisfactory.
