Processes regulating remobilisation, bioavailability and translocation of radionuclides in marine sediments

Objective

The aim of the project is to study remobilisation of radiologically, important radionuclides from sediments of different characteristics in different European environments. Transboundary exposure has to be taken into account into the modelling and assessment of committed doses. The radiological consequences will be evaluated by the study of long-range transport of the radionuclides, their speciation, uptake in biota and radioecological modelling. The objectives will be achieved through collaboration between experienced scientists regarding field sampling, laboratory experiments and analytical methods using latest techniques. The results will create a more precise knowledge of long-term effects on environment and man from present and past sources and a more informed debate on waste management of controlled release of radioactivity in the marine environment.
