  • Equation of State of Uranium Dioxide

    The monograph deals with the thermodynamic properties of fluid uranium dioxide, one of the most investigated materials of the last century, up to its critical point. It presents an exhaustive theoretical introduction to 'quasi-chemical' models of liquids, as well as their behaviour under non-congruent vaporisation conditions. Particular emphasis ...

  • Uranium Deposits of the World

    Uranium Deposits of the World, in four volumes, comprises an unprecedented compilation of data and overviews of the key uranium regions throughout the globe. It offers not only a complete uranium-resource reference based on the latest research but also access to previously unavailable data. Each country and region receives an analytical overview ...

  • Depleted Uranium in Bosnia and Herzegovina: Post-Conflict Environmental Assessment

    This report confirms for the first time that depleted uranium (DU) from weapons used in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1994 and 1995 has contaminated local supplies of drinking water at one site, and can still be found in dust particles suspended in the air. The UNEP team who collated the information included representatives from the World Health ...

  • International Control of Tritium for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament

    Tritium is used by all nuclear weapons states to increase the explosive yield of atomic bombs and to miniaturize them. However, this radioactive material has not yet been put under appropriate international control comparable to the nuclear safeguards applied for plutonium and uranium. It is a neglected material in efforts to control the spread ...

  • Turning a Problem Into a Resource

    The Sillamäe Metallurgy Plant in Estonia was managed by the USSR Ministry of Medium-Scale Engineering and was built in 1946 to produce uranium metal from local shales. After these were found to be unsatisfactory, uranium ores were imported. Part of the plant was converted in the 1980s to produce rare earth oxides and niobium and tantalum from ...

  • Sampling and Surveying Radiological Environments

    Private landowners or Federal Agencies responsible for cleaning up radiological environments are faced with the challenge of clearly defining the nature and extent of radiological contamination, implementing remedial alternatives, then statistically verifying that cleanup objectives have been met. Sampling and Surveying Radiological Environments ...

  • Health Effects of Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water

    Metals are inorganic substances that occur naturally in geological formations. Naturally occurring metals are dissolved in water when it comes into contact with rock or soil material. Some metals are essential for life and are naturally available in our food and water. Trace amounts of metals are common in water, and these are normally not harmful ...

  • Radiological Conditions in the Dnieper River Basin

    In 1986, in the Dnieper River Basin, the most severe nuclear accident in human history occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Ukraine. The accident resulted in the release of large amounts of radionuclides into the environment. In the other areas of Ukraine adjacent to the middle reaches of the Dnieper River, uranium mining and milling ...

  • Radioactive Waste Management, Second Edition

    Topics covered include: an overview of sources of radioactive waste; an introduction to radioactive decay and radiation shielding calculations; management and disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste; low-level waste; transuranic waste; Uranium mill tailings; mixed waste; transportation of radioactive waste; decontamination and ...

  • Radioactive Particles in the Environment

    Radioactive particles have been released to the environment from a number of sources, including nuclear weapon tests, nuclear accidents and discharges from nuclear installations. Particle characteristics influence the mobility, biological uptake and effects of radionuclides, hence information on these characteristics is essential for assessing ...

  • Evaluation of Uncertainties and Risks in Geology

    High levels of uncertainty are a trademark of geological investigations, such as the search for oil, diamonds, and uranium. So business ventures related to geology, such as mineral exploration and mining, are naturally associated with higher risks than more traditional entrepreneurial ventures in industry and economy. There are also a number of ...
