Water Radiation Safety Books

  • Effects of Radiation on Materials: 19th International Symposium

    STP 1366, the nineteenth volume in this series, examines 90 peer-reviewed papers from the international nuclear community, with the emphasis on advanced materials such as silicon carbide and vanadium alloys. A majority of the papers are devoted to pressure vessel embrittlement and its mitigation. Smaller segments address the issues of light ...

  • Effects of Radiation on Materials

    Extensive information on current research results dealing with the effects of radiation on light-water-reactor pressure vessels, fast breeder reactor core materials, material for first-walls in fusion systems, and solid radioactive ...

  • Materials in Nuclear Applications

    Thirty papers cover Radiation Effects and Dosimetry, Post Irradiation Effects in Polymers, Industrial Water for Reactor Use and Ceramics in Nuclear ...

  • Radiation and Water in the Climate System

    The science of the earth's climate requires reliable global data sets to validate numerical simulation models and to identify regional and global fluctuations and trends. This book presents ways to derive such data from space-borne and ground-based passive and active measurements in the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Both descriptions of the ...

  • UV-B and Biosphere

    The book UV-B and Biosphere summarizes the current status of knowledge related to effects of UV-B radiation on plant life, ranging from gene to ecosystem level. Responses to UV-B radiation of marine, fresh water and terrestrial ecosystem processes are covered. In addition the interaction of UV-B with CO2 enrichment, temperature increase and ...

  • Weakly Interacting Molecular Pairs: Unconventional Absorbers of Radiation in the Atmosphere

    While pair effects are referred to here as unconventional, in specific spectral domains and/or geophysical conditions they play a dominant role in the absorption/emission properties of the atmosphere, water vapour continuum absorption being one of the most prominent examples. The book clarifies still open questions in this domain and seeks to ...

  • 2001 Mars Odyssey

    Mars, the most habitable of our sister planets, holds a special place in our imaginations and in our space exploration program. Fully half of NASA's planetary exploration effort is now devoted to Mars. Key questions include: Has Mars ever harbored life? Is there life on Mars now? Will humans be able to survive on the Martian surface? Answers to ...

  • Weakly Nonlocal Solitary Waves and Beyond-all-Orders Asymptotics

    Weakly Nonlocal Solitary Waves and Beyond-All-Orders Asymptotics: Generalized Solitons and Hyperasymptotic Perturbation Theory represents the first thorough examination of weakly nonlocal solitary waves, which are just as important in applications as their classical counterparts. The book describes a class of waves which radiate away from ...
