The pattern of electromagnetic fields of industrial frequency in the central area of Kaliningrag cityAbstract
Artificial electromagnetic fields are a byproduct of the electrical or electronic devices as an inevitable consequence of the modern scientific and technical progress, and at the same time poorly studied environmental impact factor. Research of current levels and spatial distribution of electromagnetic fields in Kaliningrad aimed at mapping, defining statistically significant characteristics for types of land use and building types, revealing abnormal areas and their correspondence to hygienic standards and levels safety. The conducted research of electromagnetic fields of industrial frequency has shown that intensity of electric fields in the central part of Kaliningrad reaches considerable values only in immediate proximity to a high-voltage line. Magnetic fields of industrial frequency are extended everywhere and extremely unevenly that has been presented in the original map. Hygienic standards of magnetic induction are observed, but safety levels are exceeded in the abnormal locations caused by underground cables.
