  • Nuclear Waste

    The selection of a suitable site for disposal of nuclear waste is today one of the most difficult and controversial tasks, primarily because of the opposition of the local community. This book is geared to explain the origin of the negative perception of nuclear energy by the public at large. The author emphasizes that the problem of social ...

  • Managing the Plutonium Surplus: Applications and Technical Options

    Superpower arms reduction, nuclear reprocessing and the abandonment or deferral of plans for fast breeder reactions have combined to produce a worldwide surplus of highly enriched uranium and plutonium. Both materials pose security and safety problems, and plutonium poses particular dilemmas for disposal or other ways of consuming the ...

  • Atlas of Isotope Hydrology - Africa

    Naturally occurring isotopes in water provide unique hydrological information, and the associated techniques are highly cost effective. The applications of isotopes in hydrology are part of the IAEA’s programmes related to the peaceful applications of nuclear energy and have the goal of developing appropriate methods for use in water resources ...

  • Stellar Interiors

    This text, designed for beginning students of stellar physics, introduces the fundamentals of stellar structure and evolution. In emphasizing the general picture of the life cycles of stars and the physics responsible, it also allows prospective specialists a taste of many of the detailed aspects of this mature discipline. The authors develop a ...

  • Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks

    Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks deals with deep groundwater in the granite and gneiss basement of the continents. It has become evident during the past years that highly mineralized water is present in an interconnected fracture network of the basement. Thus, the upper part of the crust of the continents can be viewed as an aquifer and ...
