Description of this Book

It is only with the ending of the Cold War that the issue of environmental hazards at many former nuclear testing sites around the world has attracted international scientific interest. This book discusses the environmental, ecological and health problems associated with nuclear testing. Topics treated include dose assessment, risk, speciation and transport of radionuclides, measurement and separation of radionuclides, and remedial options. The nuclear test sites examined include Semipalatinsk (Kazakhstan), Nevada (USA), the Pacific atolls and Maralinga (Australia). The volume also discusses the additional release sites of Chelyabinsk (Russia), Chernobyl (Ukraine), Palomares (Spain), Los Alamos (USA) and others. A compendium of radiological problems for a wide spectrum of readers, from non-specialist to expert.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'The book is interesting from very different points of view. It is evidently a must for all scientists and authors interested in the future risks of radioactive contamination of vast areas. But it is also a landmark in the mutual opening of scientific data and of experimental minds between former competitors. [ This aspect alone could make the book a must in the library of what could become the socological study of the behaviour of scientists when their traditions of formerly very different frames of references, begin to unify.' International Journal of Environment and Pollution, 17 (2002)
