Man-Made and Natural Radioactivity in Environmental Pollution and Radiochronology

Edited by Tykva, Richard; Edited by Berg, Dieter

The goal of this book is to examine the complex state of radioactivity in the environment, and to understand the interplay of its two principal sources: man-made and natural. The text examines human contributions to release of radionuclides, with an eye to future reductions, and assesses natural occurrences in an evaluation of baseline radioactivity.
