The 60 Co source is used in the FIPLY irradiator. The source is stored under water and the water pool acts as the shield and is useful for the removal of the decay heat. The radiation field measurement on the water pool area was desired to be carried out for different depths of water and during the source held in the exposed state, gamma dose mapping in the irradiator room with distance from the source rack. The paper describes the radiation field prevailing at various depths of water pool with source under water and gamma dose with distance in the irradiator room during the sources held in the exposed state.
