Nuclear Waste Books

  • Geological Fluid Dynamics: Sub-surface Flow and Reactions

    This book is the long-awaited successor to Owen Phillips’s classic textbook, Flow and Reactions in Permeable Rocks, published in 1991. In the intervening 18 years between the two, significant advances have been made to our understanding of subterranean flow, especially through the vast amount of research into underground storage of nuclear waste ...

  • Geotechnical Engineering of Ocean Waste Disposal

    15 peer-reviewed papers on geotechnical test methods and procedures used for site evaluation, design, construction, and monitoring of both contaminated areas and waste disposal facilities in the marine environment. Part A -- Shallow Ocen Disposal: Dredged Material, Sludges, and Bulking Wastes includes six papers on dredge material disposal. Part ...

  • Chemical Separation Technologies and Related Methods of Nuclear Waste Management

    Separation technologies are of crucial importance to the goal of significantly reducing the volume of high-level nuclear waste, thereby reducing the long-term health risks to mankind. International co-operation, including the sharing of concepts and methods, as well as technology transfer, is essential in accelerating research and development in ...

  • Nuclear Waste

    The selection of a suitable site for disposal of nuclear waste is today one of the most difficult and controversial tasks, primarily because of the opposition of the local community. This book is geared to explain the origin of the negative perception of nuclear energy by the public at large. The author emphasizes that the problem of social ...

  • Handbook of Nuclear Chemistry

    This revised and extended 5 volume handbook set is the most comprehensive and voluminous reference work of its kind in the field of nuclear chemistry. The Handbook set covers all of the chemical aspects of nuclear science starting from the physical basics and including such diverse areas as the chemistry of transactinides and exotic atoms as well ...

  • The Environmental Challenges of Nuclear Disarmament

    This book draws together recognized experts from numerous institutions in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and North America. Nuclear facility decontamination and decommissioning, waste treatment, management and disposal, long-term monitoring and surveillance, and prevention of proliferation are the primary topics ...

  • Towards a Cleaner Planet

    This book presents an overview of the main energy sources, production problems and energy perspectives in Germany and Mexico. It covers the present status of traditional and alternative energy sources like fossil fuels, nuclear, hydraulic, eolic, solar, and hydrogen cells, with emphasis on searching for answers to questions such as what the main ...

  • 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 ...

  • Analysis of Risks Associated with Nuclear Submarine Decommissioning, Dismantling and Disposal

    A great number of nuclear submarines are due to be decommissioned before 2000. The political decisions surrounding the disposal of nuclear compartments, radioactive wastes and spent fuel differ appreciably between the countries that own the boats. The decision makers involved thus need help in comparing and assessing alternative options for ...

  • The Dilemma of Siting a High-Level Nuclear Waste Repository

    This book explores the dilemma of siting a high-level nuclear waste (HLNW) repository. The authors examine siting conflicts from a variety of perspectives - political, psychological, and sociological - and identify the fundamental determinants of public opposition to waste disposal facilities as a means of designing more effective approaches ...

  • The Bedrock of Opinion

    The issue of nuclear waste is about managing some of the most dangerous material ever to exist. This has to be done safely, and in a way that remains safe for many thousands of years. To realize safe disposal, satisfying bedrock conditions are needed as well as people willing to accept disposal in their own community. In most countries this kind ...

  • Nuclear Submarine Decommissioning and Related Problems

    The end of the Cold War has led to an acceleration in the decommissioning of the world's nuclear submarine fleet. Russian vessels, in particular, are being taken rapidly out of service and this surge of vessels has in many cases far exceeded the capacity of the available decommissioning facilities in Russia. Severe problems exist in areas ...

  • Microbial Degradation Processes in Radioactive Waste Repository and in Nuclear Fuel Storage Areas

    While the long-term storage of high-level wastes is just starting in some countries, low and medium-level wastes have been stored for several decades. Further, interim storage of spent fuel has been extended at many locations far beyond the intended time span. One of the priorities of this book is a discussion of the deleterious effects ...
