Environmental Radiochemistry

The fate and transport of radionuclides in the environment continues to receive worldwide attention as we deal with the cleanup of contaminated sites and the siting of permanent geologic nuclear repositories. Understanding the environmental behavior of radionuclides continues to be of paramount importance given the relatively high level of nuclear activities in the southeast including nuclear power production, low-level waste disposition, nuclear fuel production, and the DOE Savannah River Site. In the Environmental Radiochemistry Symposium we are seeking presentations in the broad area of new and ongoing research that address the subsurface fate and transport of actinides/radionuclides.
