  1. 1. Anthropogenic Radionuclides in the Arctic Ocean: Distribution and Pathways

    University dissertation from The Jubileum Institute, Department of Radiation Physics, Lund University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Dan Josefsson; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; americium; plutonium; iodine; strontium; cesium; Sellafield; Chernobyl; global fallout; currents; shelf; ocean; radioactivity; Arctic; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic radionuclide concentrations have been determined in seawater and sediment samples collected in 1991, 1994 and 1996 in the Eurasian Arctic shelf and interior. Global fallout, releases from European reprocessing plants and the Chernobyl accident are identified as the three main sources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of Long-lived Radionuclides in the Environment - with Emphasis on 99Tc, 237Np and Pu Isotopes

    University dissertation from Patric Lindahl, Department of Radiation Physics, University Hospital, 221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Patric Lindahl; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nuclear medicine; radiobiology; Nukleärmedicin; radiobiologi; atomic ratio; environmental samples; nuclear weapons fallout; Chernobyl fallout; bioindicators; activated carbon; Sellafield; plutonium; neptunium; ICP-MS; technetium;

    Abstract : Studies of the long-lived anthropogenic radionuclides 99Tc, 237Np, 239Pu and 240Pu were performed in marine and terrestrial areas contaminated by different accidental and controlled releases of radioactive materials. The three main sources discussed in this thesis are nuclear weapons tests, nuclear reprocessing plants and the Chernobyl accident. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anthropogenic 129I Traced in Environmental Archives by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Edvard Englund; Göran Possnert; Ala Aldahan; José María López-Gutiérrez; [2008]
    Keywords : Engineering physics; iodine-129; sediment; aerosol; reprocessing; Chernobyl; nuclear weapon; Sellafield; La Hague; accelerator mass spectrometry; AMS; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Since the beginning of the nuclear era, starting during the 1940s, large amount of radioactivity has been released into the environment. This thesis deals with the temporal and spatial distribution of the anthropogenic radioisotope 129I (T1/2= 15.7 Myr) in northern Europe. READ MORE
