  • Man-Made and Natural Radioactivity in Environmental Pollution and Radiochronology

    The basic goal of this book is to examine the complex state of radioactivity in the environment, including its sources and applications. In principle, there are two sources of environmental radioactivity, namely man-made and natural. The authors of this book set out to analyze mainly empirical aspects of the activities of both groups. On one hand, ...

  • Chernobyl

    As the debate about the environmental cost of nuclear power and the issue of nuclear safety continues, a comprehensive assessment of the Chernobyl accident, its long-term environmental consequences and solutions to the problems found, is timely. Although many books have been published which discuss the accident itself and the immediate emergency ...

  • Effects of Radiation on Materials: 16th International Symposium

    Comprehensive look at the latest research on how radiation effects metal and non-metal materials, with emphasis on fundamental mechanisms of damage and applications to nuclear systems. Over 80 peer-review papers in 15 sections. The diversity of the selections cover a complete range of topics, including: • The importance of research on ...

  • 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 ...

  • Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wastes en Natural Annalogues (Paperback)

    Many countries are currently exploring the option to dispose of highly radioactive solid wastes deep underground in purpose built, engineered repositories. A number of surface and shallow repositories for less radioactive wastes are already in operation. One of the challenges facing the nuclear industry is to demonstrate confidently that a ...

  • Principles and Standards for the Disposal of Long-lived Radioactive Wastes

    This handbook is concerned with developing principles and standards for the safe disposal of solid radioactive wastes by burial deep in the Earth's crust. Radioactive wastes have focussed thinking on long-term environmental protection issues in an unprecedented way. Consequently, the way in which principles and standards are set, and the thinking ...

  • Kent and Riegel´s Handbook of Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology

    Substantially revising and updating the classic reference in the field, this handbook offers a valuable overview and myriad details on current chemical processes, products, and practices. No other source offers as much data on the chemistry, engineering, economics, and infrastructure of the industry.The Handbook serves a spectrum of individuals, ...

  • International Approaches to Securing Radioactive Sources Against Terrorism

    As a result of arms control efforts over the past 50 years, nuclear material is subject to strict national controls and tough international treaties. But there are still almost no controls, other than a voluntary International Atomic Energy Agency code of conduct, on the sorts of radiological sources used to make radiological dirty bombs. ...

  • Computer Supported Risk Management

    Advances in information technology provide opportunities for the development of computer systems that support risk managers in complex tasks. Leading experts report on the potentials and limitations concerning the use of computer systems in risk management. Their reports are based on many years of experience in their fields which include: ...

  • Industrial Cleaning Technology

    This book contains a comprehensive review of current industrial cleaning techniques including those using traditional low, medium, and high pressure water, solvents, chemical compounds and foam, wet and soluble abrasives, 'pigging devices', biotechnology processes and the latest computerized 'state-of-the-art' in-line automatic techniques. ...

  • NATO And Terrorism

    International terrorism remains a significant threat to the peace of the world. Weapons using various materials and delivery systems have been directed against cities and infrastructure, and other materials are postulated to be usable within the near future. Some of these materials are unusual or exotic, while some are modifications of materials ...

  • PERFORMANCE of PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Global Needs and Emerging Markets: 8th Symposium

    Nineteen peer-reviewed papers address a range of topics related to the performance of protective clothing for government and industrial workers, first responders, and civilians. Five sections cover: Nuclear, biological, and chemical protective apparel—how to effectively evaluate material choices for chemical protective apparel using ...
