Abstract

The aim was to review available data concerning the movement of radioisotopes of neptunium and the higher environmental transport models. Plutonium and neptunium are discussed in this volume. Attention has been given to this topic by the inclusion of a section in the chapter on plutonium covering mechanisms involved in sea to land transfer (Chapter 29, Section 4) and concerning the development of models for radionuclide transport in soils and plants (Chapter 29, Section 3). In addition, the physical and chemical behaviour of actinides in waters and sediments is of considerable importance in their environmental transport subsequent to release to water bodies. This topic has received most attention in the case of plutonium, and this is reflected in the more detailed discussion on behaviour in waters and sediments than for other elements and radionuclides (Chapter 29, Section 6).
