  1. 1. Controlling Weapons of Mass Destruction : An Evaluation of International Security Regime Significance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Charles F. Parker; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Political science; Regimes; security; international cooperation; compliance; weapons of mass destruction; arms control; non-proliferation; nuclear weapons; biological weapons; chemical weapons; NPT; BTWC; CWC; CTBT; Statsvetenskap; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Political science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Statsvetenskap; statskunskap; Political Science;

    Abstract : This dissertation conducts an in-depth examination of the three weapons of mass destruction control regimes: the nuclear non-proliferation regime, the biological weapons control regime, and the chemical weapons control regime (NBC weapon control regimes). By examining a number of key indicators, this study investigates the specific ways each regime makes or does not make a difference in its respective issue area. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methods of Measuring Radioactivity in the Environment

    University dissertation from Nuclear Physics (Faculty of Science)

    Author : Mats Isaksson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radioactivity; soil sampling; depth distribution; nuclear weapons fallout; Chernobyl; sewage sludge; deposition; Ekologi; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Isaksson; Ecology; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; Cs-137;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Nedfall av radioaktiva ämnen, framförallt Cs-137 från atmosfäriska kärnvapenprov och från Tjernobylolyckan, ger idag ett bidrag till den bakgrundsstrålning vi utsätts för. På grund av att Cs-137 har en förhållandevis lång halveringstid (30 år) kommer detta radioaktiva ämne att finnas kvar i ekosystemen för lång tid framöver och det är därför betydelsefullt att studera dess uppförande i naturen.

  3. 3. 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; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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. Nuclear Power as a Climate Change Mitigation Option: a Modelling Approach

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

    Author : Mariliis Lehtveer; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CCS; sensitivity analysis; nuclear weapons proliferation; energy system model; nuclear power; climate change;

    Abstract : Although nuclear power can provide electricity with very low life cycle carbon emissions and thus reduce the cost of climate change mitigation, it also brings along many specific challenges: accident risk, need for radioactive waste management and nuclear weapons proliferation risk. Due to this controversial nature nuclear power, among other energy forms, has been relatively little studied in a climate mitigation context. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physical Characterization of Actinide Particles - A Study on Novel Techniques for Radiological and Nuclear Safeguard Investigations

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Ylva Ranebo; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; plutonium oxide particles; secondary ion mass spectrometry; uranium oxide particles; hot particles; vibrating orifice aerosol generator; scanning electron microscopy; nuclear safeguards;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a study of advanced analytical techniques, for the characterization of actinide particles originating from the non-peaceful use of nuclear technology and from international inspections of the nuclear fuel cycle associated with non-proliferation agreements. The thesis is based on five papers, which will be referred to by Paper I-V in the text. READ MORE
