The new scintillation detectors CsI(Tl) + Si PIN photodiode were developed in Kurchatov Institute. The current state of developed spectrometric probes present large volume (10-300cm3) scintillation detectors intended for gamma-ray spectroscopy. These detectors consist of a spherical CsI(Tl) crystal packed in MgO power within a cylindrical aluminum housing and Hamamatsu photodiode. Environmental devices base of the above probes uses methods of field spectrometry. They include spectrometric electronics and algorithms of spectra processing to obtain particular characteristics of environmental radioactivity or radioactive contamination. The description of measurement techniques used with devices, their performance parameters and results of their practical applications are presented.
