Bioavailability Of Radionuclides In Soils: role of biological components and resulting improvement of prediction models - BORIS, Summary of Final Report

Project ID: FIGE-CT-2000-00071
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

BORIS is a European Project partly financed by the European Commission via the Fifth Framework Programme of the European Atomic energy Community (EURATOM) for Research and training in the field of Nuclear Energy (1998-2002)
The general objectives of the proposal aim at:
- apprehending mainly the role of the biological elements (plants, mycorrhiza, microbes) involved in these transfers: radionuclides sorption/desorption in soils and radionuclides uptake/release by the plants.
- improving existing predictive models of radionuclides contamination of soils and plants, by incorporating knowledge acquired from the experimental results into two mechanistic models CHEMFAST and BIORUR specifically modelling radionuclides sorption/desorption from soil matrices and radionuclides uptake/release to/from plants and then by incorporating these mechanistic models into assessment models to enhance their prediction ability.
