  • Isotopes in Environmental Studies - Aquatic Forum 2004 - Proceedings of an International Conference held in Monaco, 25-29 October 2004

    This proceedings publication reviews the present state of the art in applications of radioactive and stable isotopes in achieving a better understanding of environmental processes and in the protection of the aquatic environment. The main topics include: studies of the behaviour, transport and distribution of isotopes in the aquatic environment, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, and Mixed Wastes

    The development of stabilization and solidification techniques in the field of waste treatment reflects the efforts to better protect human health and the environment with modern advances in materials and technology. Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, and Mixed Wastes provides comprehensive information including case ...

  • Environmental Protection Against Radioactive Pollution

    The reports presented here discuss: General estimation of the radioactive contamination of the territories and radiation hazardous objects, including former military test sites, areas influenced due to Chernobyl and Mayak accidents, and territories of oil fields; Techniques and procedures of radioecological monitoring; Techniques of determining ...

  • 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 ...

  • Nuclear Risk in Central Asia

    There are a significant number of nuclear and radiological sources in Central Asia, which have contributed, are still contributing, or have the potential to contribute to radioactive contamination in the future. Key sources and contaminated sites of concern are: (1) The nuclear weapons tests performed at the Semipalatinsk Test Site (STS) in ...
