Abstract

An understanding of the physico-chemical forms of fission products in the environment is essential for man to be able to protect the biosphere from any deleterious effects of nuclear power. Speciation is not only important for a study of bioavailability, but it also determines the geochemical processes, hence with a knowledge of environmental speciation the transfer of radionuclides along pathways to man can be predicted. Topics covered at the seminar included the speciation of actinides, other fission products in the aquatic environment, soils, strata, plants and animals.
