Radioactive Waste Monitoring Books

  • Decommissioning and Radioactive Waste Management

    This book provides a detailed understanding of the issues associated with these processes. The depth and breadth of the treatment is such that the book is suitable as a text book for graduate and post-graduate courses, and will also be useful to those involved in decommissioning projects and radioactive waste management practices, such as project ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

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

    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 ...

  • Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, and Mixed Wastes, 2nd Volume

    39 papers by researchers working with stabilization and solidification technologies from both the low-level radioactive and chemically hazardous waste communities are presented in sections on: • Regulatory and Technical Guidance • Specialty Wastes: Organics, Ashes, and Resins • Laboratory-Scale Leachability Studies • ...

  • Geological Storage of Highly Radioactive Waste

    The book describes and assesses current concepts for long-term disposal of highly radioactive waste. Different types of rock are discussed and assessed with respect to practical difficulties in construction of a repository, and the efficiency in isolating radioactive waste. Safety matters are most important and are treated in the respective ...

  • Uranium in the Environment

    This book presents the results from the Uranium Mining and Hydrogeology Congress held in September 2005, in Freiberg, Germany. It addresses scientists and engineers involved in the areas of uranium mining and milling sites, clean-up measures, emissions of nuclear power plants and radioactive waste disposal, as well as political decision-makers.The ...

  • Decision Making for Complex Socio-Technical Systems

    The long-term governance of radioactive waste continues to be a major complex and contentious socio-technical issue worldwide. Traditionally, it has been considered as mainly a challenge to scientists and engineers to develop technical 'solutions' to specific problems. But increasingly these narrow solutions have been enlarged by wider societal ...

  • Actinide Speciation in High Ionic Strength Media

    This proceedings, based on an American Chemical Society symposium entitled 'Experimental and Modeling Studies of Actinide Speciation in Non-Ideal Systems', deals with the management and disposal of radioactive waste. More specifically, it concerns modeling and experimental approaches for actinide chemistry in high ionic strength media, ...

  • Mine Wastes

    This book provides a thorough, up-to-date overview of wastes accumulating at mine sites. It deals comprehensively with sulfidic mine wastes, mine water, tailings, cyanidation wastes of gold-silver ores, radioactive wastes of uranium ores, and wastes of phosphate and potash ores. The book emphasizes the characterization, prediction, monitoring, ...

  • Defence Nuclear Waste Disposal in Russia: International Perspective

    Significant amounts of liquid and solid radioactive waste have been generated in Russia during the production of nuclear weapons, and there is an urgent need to find suitable ways to manage these wastes in a way that protects both the current population and future generations. This book contains contributions from pure and applied scientists ...

  • Chernobyl - What Have We Learned?

    Twenty million people have been exposed to Chernobyl radionuclides through the Dnieper River aquatic pathways. This book presents a 20-year historical overview and comprehensive study results of the aquatic environment affected by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. During this time, many water quality management practices and countermeasures ...
