Abstract/Summary

This book presents an extensive overview of the fields of sciences developed mainly during the last half-century. The present textbook is designed to help in the education of trainee radioecologists. The target reader is considered to be a student having obtained his first degree. Thus the book is an introduction to Radioecology, intended to provide a broad radioecological background rather than a description of the latest research findings and interpretations. However, it includes many references to the original research papers and the advanced literature. The book aims at maintaining and safeguarding expertise acquired in the field of radioecological studies. Emphasis is put on theoretical and technical aspects such as environmental sampling techniques and modelling of dispersion and transport of radionuclides in the environment. This expertise should remain of essential concern to authorities and operators in the nuclear energy sector. The book provides reference reading for nuclear industry managers as well as engineers and scientists who want to increase their knowledge with respect to Radioecology. Lecturers and readers in the life sciences may find it a useful source of information.
