Abstract  

A new rapid method for the determination of actinides and radiostrontium in vegetation samples has been developed at the Savannah River Site Environmental Lab (Aiken, SC, USA) that can be used in emergency response situations or for routine analysis. The actinides in vegetation method utilizes a rapid sodium hydroxide fusion method, a lanthanum fluoride matrix removal step, and a streamlined column separation process with stacked TEVA, TRU and DGA Resin cartridges. Lanthanum was separated rapidly and effectively from Am and Cm on DGA Resin. Alpha emitters are prepared using rare earth microprecipitation for counting by alpha spectrometry. The purified 90Sr fractions are mounted directly on planchets and counted by gas flow proportional counting. The method showed high chemical recoveries and effective removal of interferences. The actinide and 90Sr in vegetation sample analysis can be performed in less than 8 h with excellent quality for emergency samples. The rapid fusion technique is a rugged sample digestion method that ensures that any refractory actinide particles or vegetation residue after furnace heating is effectively digested.

Magyarországon a környezetvédelmi magánjog alaptényállása a szomszédjogi zavarás törvényi tényállása a polgári törvénykönyvben. Ezt két szankciórendszer teszi lex perfectává: a birtokvédelmi és a kártérítési. A környezetvédelmi magánjog kártérítési felelősségi szankciója kvázi deliktualitást mutat. A környezetvédelmi magánjog mint tudományos kifejezés kevésbé terjedt el Magyarországon, mint például az angol, a francia vagy a német szaknyelvben. A környezetvédelmi magánjog joggyakorlata ellenben széles körű kazuisztikával bír. A környezetvédelmi magánjog absztrakcióját nem vagy alig végezte el a magyarországi jogtudomány, ezért a környezetvédelmi magánjogot jobbára csak a „beavatott”, a konkrét szakterületen tevékenykedő jogászok ismerik behatóan. Ezen a helyzeten a jogi oktatás hivatott változtatni.

Abstract  

Some frontiers of environmental radioactivity are outlined where radioecologists and chemists are required to solve environmental problems. The first theme is the need for research on biogeochemical cycling of both stable and radioactive nuclides. The second theme discusses measurement challenges in radioecology. The third theme is related to predictive abilities where much of the present radioecology work is aimed at estimates of impacts in the future. These three themes are linked because our predictive abilities of radionuclide transport require a better knowledge of nuclide cycling, and nuclide cycling can only be studied with the availability of good measurement techniques.

Abstract  

As part of Canada’s international commitment for the collective defence of allied nations, nuclear submarines from allied nations berth at three approved locations on both east and west coasts of Canada. In the case of any untoward event, a nuclear emergency response (NER) organisation has been established. In addition, regular sampling of the coastal environment is undertaken as the Environmental Radionuclide Monitoring Programme (ERMP). This continuing effort consists of a long-term programme and a visit sub-programme. In the former, samples are ocean sediment, seawater, aquatic plants and sealife; in the latter, samples are seawater taken before, during and after each visit. Samples are collected according to a prescribed schedule and follow a chain of custody to the accredited laboratory in the SLOWPOKE-2 Facility at RMC. Counting and analyses are done by gamma-ray spectroscopy by the Analytical Services Group (ASG) at RMC. With most results below detection limit, the safety of the NPV visits is assured.
