About the Edition

This book addresses scientists and engineers involved in the areas of uranium mining and milling sites, clean-up measures, emissions of nuclear power plants and radioactive waste disposal, as well as political decision-makers. The topics covered are: impact on groundwater from radionuclide emission, analytical speciation techniques, chemical toxicity, radioisotope plant uptake, microbiology catalyzing U(6+) to U(4+) reduction, geochemical and reactive transport, case studies on abandoned uranium mines and milling sites, long-term storage of radioactive waste, passive in situ treatment techniques and risk assessment studies.

This article presents the results of study about distribution, inflow and accumulation of polonium, uranium and plutonium in aquatic and land environment of Poland and the southern Baltic Sea. Radionuclides of Po, U and U as well as + Pu and Pu are strongly accumulated in Baltic organisms and plants and transferred through Cited by: 9. Uranium in the environment refers to the science of the sources, environmental behaviour, and effects of uranium on humans and other animals. Uranium is weakly radioactive and remains so because of its long physical half-life ( billion years for uranium).The biological half-life (the average time it takes for the human body to eliminate half the amount in the body) for uranium is.

In this book, we therefore define the aquatic organisms as those living mainly in liquid water bodies such as ponds, lakes, rivers or oceans. It is said that Earth was born billion years.

Uranium is used mainly as fuel in nuclear power stations, although some uranium compounds are also used as catalysts and staining pigments (Berlin & Rudell, ). Spent uranium is used in military hardware.

Uranium in the Aquatic Environment: Proceedings of the International Conference Uranium Mining and Hydrogeology III and the International Mine Water Association Symposium Freiberg, Germany, September Preface Uranium is a radioactive element and a heavy metal which is naturally occurring in ground and surface water.

Uranium is an element to be found ubiquitous in rock, soil, and water. Uranium concentrations in natural ground water can be more than several hundreds µg/l without impact from mining, nuclear industr. The book put forth an fairly interesting history of the use of Uranium.

Discussion of the science behind using Uranium for weapons or energy was clear and mostly concise. The Author spent too much time in my view talking about his particular adventures to various parts of the world investigating the history of Uranium and its impact on the world/5.

Uranium (U) is a primordial radionuclide that is naturally present in the environment at low concentrations. Natural U is mainly a chemical hazard as opposed to a radiological hazard. The chemical speciation of U influences its bioavailability and toxicity. In France, the provisional environmental quality standard (EQS) proposed for uranium in a continental aquatic environment, the result of work by INERIS, is obtained summing the geochemical background and the PNEC fresh water ( µg/L).

1. Introduction. Uranium (U) is a radioactive metal found naturally within the earth's crust. The concentration of U in freshwater ecosystems may become elevated due to various anthropogenic inputs such as those related to the nuclear fuel cycle (i.e. U mining and the processing of waste), military use of depleted U, and the use of phosphate-containing by: 2 Properties of uranium in respect of environmental protection Uranium is a chemical element with atomic number As mentioned above, natural uranium is a mixture of three isotopes, U (%), U (%) and U (%).

Uranium is a naturally occurring, ubiquitous,File Size: KB. Uranium is a naturally and commonly occurring radioactive element. It is found in very small amounts in nature in the form of minerals but may be processed into a silver-colored metal.

Rocks, soil, surface and underground water, air, plants, and animals all contain varying amounts of uranium. Most ingested uranium is eliminated from the body.

About this book In recent years, radioactive contamination in the environment by uranium (U) and its daughters has caused increasing concerns globally. This book provides recent developments and comprehensive knowledge to the researchers and academicians who are working on uranium contaminated areas : Springer International Publishing.

Uranium is weakly radioactive and remains so because of its long physical half-life ( billion years for uranium).

The biological half-life (the average time it takes for the human body to eliminate half the amount in the body) for uranium is about 15 days.

It is widely spread throughout the environment and so it is impossible to avoid uranium. Uranium can be found naturally in the environment in very small amounts in rocks, soil, air and water.

The abundance and composition of bacteria of the phylum Acidobacteria were surveyed in subsurface sediments from uranium-contaminated sites using amplification of 16S rRNA genes followed by clone/sequence analysis.

Analysis of sequences from this study and public databases produced a revised and greatly expanded phylogeny of the Acidobacteria phylum consisting of 26 by:. “In order to understand the risk of uranium toxicity to living organisms, scientists need to understand how or if uranium compounds are taken up by aquatic organisms whether through diet, or directly from the waters they live in, and which uranium compounds are most available to living organisms under different environmental conditions.Uranium and Manganese in Surface Water — Rehabilitation Standard for the Ranger uranium mine Water and sediment theme.
