A study of ecogeophysical factors of the environment in Vladikavkaz was carried out at 126 points: indicators of noise pollution, electric fields and the level of gamma radiation were measured. The noise level was determined with the help of noise and vibration meter Ekogeofizika-110A of the domestic company Oktava. It has been defined that the population of Vladikavkaz is subjected to a significant noise period of time, which exceeds the permissible level, which can negatively affect the health of citizens. Measurements of gamma radiation level were made using a gamma radiation dosimeter DBGA-OCHA. According to the obtained data, the population of Vladikavkaz is exposed to the gamma radiation in the range of 0.05–0.18 µSv/h and with an average value of 0.11 µSv/h, which is below the maximum permissible level. In order to study the electric fields, the measurements were carried out by the electric field meter IEP-05. The electric field strength reached up to 1400 V/m at individual measurement points, at an acceptable level of 800 V/m; this indicator exceeds the maximum permissible values.
