Abstract

Methods have been developed, by which the radiological impact on man of radioactive releases in effluents from nuclear power plants and their supporting fuel cycle facilities can be assessed. These methods rely on data from field and laboratory studies concerned with radionuclide and stable element distribution and transport in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The data from these studies are published in a wide range of reports and journals from research institutions over a period of several decades. The present work, of which this publication is the 5th volume, presents a systematic and critical review of these data and gives guidelines for their use in assessments of the impact of routine releases of radioactive effluents. The scope and the detail of the volumes is such, that they are likely to become a standard reference work for those concerned with the study and regulation of radioactivity in the environment, and a useful source of data for those concerned with the distribution of and transport of a variety of stable environmental pollutants. This volume is one of several covering the major actinide elements, it provides exhaustive information on Americium and Curium.
