ALMERA Proficiency Test: Determination of Natural and Artificial Radionuclides in Soil and Water
  • ALMERA Proficiency Test: Determination of Natural and Artificial Radionuclides in Soil and Water
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). December 2013
  • This publication presents the results of the Analytical Laboratories for the Measurement of Environmental Radioactivity (ALMERA) proficiency test IAEA-TEL-2011-04 on the determination of natural and artificial radionuclides in water and soil. The methodologies, data evaluation approach, summary evaluation of each radionuclide and individual evaluation reports for each laboratory are also described.

Using Isotopes for Design and Monitoring of Artificial Recharge Systems
  • Using Isotopes for Design and Monitoring of Artificial Recharge Systems
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). November 2013
  • This publication discusses several theoretical aspects important to the understanding, planning and monitoring of artificial recharge (AR) and aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) schemes and presents a selected number of examples illustrating the usefulness of isotopes and other tracers. The publication is expected to be of interest to hydrologists and water managers in areas where intensive exploitation of available water resources leads to shortages of water and where AR is being considered or is being implemented.

Application of Isotope Techniques for Assessing Nutrient Dynamics in River Basins
  • Application of Isotope Techniques for Assessing Nutrient Dynamics in River Basins
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). May 2013
  • This publication presents the application of isotope techniques as a powerful tool for evaluating the sources, pathways, transformation and fate of nutrients in river systems, focusing on nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon containing substances. This publication aims to serve water resource managers as a guidebook on the application of isotope techniques in nutrient assessment and management, but it is also expected to be a practical aid for other interested and concerned individuals and organizations.

Actions to protect the public in an emergency due to severe conditions at a light water reactor
  • Actions to protect the public in an emergency due to severe conditions at a light water reactor
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). May 2013
  • This publication is intended to provide an understanding of the actions necessary to protect the public for those responsible for making and for acting on decisions in the event of an emergency involving actual or projected severe damage to the fuel in the reactor core or spent fuel pool at a light water reactor (LWR) or spent fuel pool. It provides a basis for developing the tools and criteria at the preparedness stage that would be needed in taking protective actions and other actions in response to an emergency. It could also be of direct use in the respon...[Read full description]

Isotope methods for dating old groundwater
  • Isotope methods for dating old groundwater
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). April 2013
  • This book's 14 chapters explain what is currently understood about the use and application of radionuclides and related geochemical tracers and tools to assess groundwater age and movement over time spans beyond a few thousand years. It aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of why groundwater age is an important parameter for characterizing aquifer hydrogeology, how to estimate groundwater ages using different isotopes and how best to use age data for the analysis of groundwater flow.

Radiotracer applications in wastewater treatment plants
  • Radiotracer applications in wastewater treatment plants
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). June 2011
  • Tracer techniques are very useful tools to investigate the efficiency of purification in wastewater treatment plants. This publication was prepared using the inputs from a meeting of experts held in June 2007 and lecture materials prepared for various IAEA regional training courses. It is intended to assist radiotracer groups in Member States to promote and apply radiotracer technology for better serving the environmental sector.
  • Geographical coverage (region): Global
  • Main themes: Technology, Wastewater, Water treatment
