INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE BEHAVIOUR OF LONG LIVED RADIONUCLIDES IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT. PROCEEDINGS OF A MEETING JOINTLY ORGANIZED BY CEC AND ENEA, LA SPEZIA (I), SEPTEMBER 28-30, 1983.
The symposium was organised by the ENEA (Centro Ricerche Energia Ambiente, Forte Santa Teresa, Lerici, Italy), in collaboration with the CEC (DG XII-F-1, Radiation protection programme) with the aim of discussing the problems of the behaviour of long-lived radionuclides in the marine environment. A better understanding of the consequences of artificial radionuclide contamination can be gained through knowledge of the interaction of radionuclides and stable isotopes or analogs particularly as pertains to the different physico-chemical forms and their behaviour in relation to organic substances, sediments, microorganisms and marine biota. The following main topics have been thus considered: chemistry, sediments, biota and risk assessment and the principles of current radiation protection practice have been considered in terms of the requirements they pose for a more detailed understanding of environmental processes determining the distribution of radionuclides.
