DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rcx5cc/radionuclide) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Radionuclide behaviour in the natural environment: Science, implications and lessons for the nuclear industry" to their offering.

Understanding radionuclide behaviour in the natural environment is essential to the development of nuclear energy and key to enhancing public confidence in the industry. Scientific knowledge in this field has developed greatly over the last decade. Radionuclide behaviour in the natural environment provides a comprehensive overview of the key processes and parameters affecting radionuclide mobility and migration.

Key Topics Covered:

Overview of radionuclide behaviour in the natural environment.

Part 1 Radionuclide chemistry in the natural environment: Fundamentals of aquatic chemistry relevant to radionuclide behaviour in the environment

- Aquatic chemistry of the actinides: Aspects relevant to their environmental behaviour

- Aquatic chemistry of long-lived mobile fission and activation products in the context of deep geological disposal

- Impacts of humic substances on the geochemical behaviour of radionuclides

- Impacts of microorganisms on radionuclides in contaminated environments and waste materials.

Part 2 Radionuclide migration: Hydrogeological features relevant to radionuclide migration in the natural environment

- Radionuclide retention at solid/liquid interfaces in the natural environment

- Radionuclide migration: coupling transport and chemistry

- Impact of colloidal transport on radionuclide migration in the natural environment

- Natural analogues of nuclear waste repositories: Studies and their implications for the development of radionuclide migration models

- Studying radionuclide migration on different scales: The complimentary roles of laboratory and in situ experiments

- Radionuclide transfer processes in the biosphere.

Part 3 Environmental impact and remediation: Modelling radionuclide transport in the environment and calculating radiation doses

- Quantitative assessment of radionuclide migration from near-surface radioactive waste burial sites: The waste dumps in the Chernobyl exclusion zone as an example

- Remediation of sites contaminated by radionuclides

- Safety assessment of nuclear waste repositories: A radionuclide migration perspective.
