Le césium-137 : propriétés de ce radionucléide, évolution dans les sols, les eaux, la chaîne alimentaire, risques pour l'environnement et les populations, et comment se débarrasser de ce déchet encombrant de l'énergie nucléaire.
Daniel Robeau est un spécialiste reconnu en radioprotection auquel l'Agence internationale de Vienne n'a pas hésité à faire appel pour faire un bilan de la situation écologique 10 ans après l'accident de Tchernobyl.
François Daburon, docteur vétérinaire, a consacré une grande partie de sa carrière au transfert des radionucléides dans le cheptel, il est à ce titre un expert reconnu sur le plan européen.
Henri Métivier, directeur de recherche à l'IPSN, est membre de la Commission internationale de protection radiologique et a une longue expérience sur la contamination de l'Homme par les radionucléides.
For more than a half-century, Mats Hillert has contributed greatly to the Science of Materials. He is widely known and respected as an innovator and educator, a scientist with an enormous breadth of interest and depth of insight. The difficult choice of twenty-four papers from a publication list of more than three hundred was carried out in consultation with him. He also suggested or approved names of those scientists who would be invited to write brief introductions to each of the papers. A brief reading of the topics of the selected papers and their introductions reveals something of their range and depth. Several early selections - including internal reports of the Swedish Institute for Metal Research, published here in their original shape - contained seminal material that established Mats Hillert as a leading figure in the study of phase transformations in solids. Others established his presence in the areas of solidification and computational thermodynamics. This volume represents a judicious sampling only of Mats Hillert's extensive body of work;
It is necessarily incomplete, but it is hoped and expected that it will prove useful to students of Material Science and Engineering at all levels, and that it will inspire the further study and appreciation of his many contributions.
IPSN compiles and reviews the available information on artificial radioactivity in seas and oceans. The data collected in this book give an assessment of radionuclide distributions which will be useful to address scientific and wider public concerns about radionuclides found in the aquatic environment.
Pierre Guéguéniat, Director of the IPSN Marine Radioecology Laboratory, at Octeville near Chercbourg, is a specialist in radio-chemistry and ardionuclide maigration in the marine environment. He has developed in Europe the use of artificial radionuclides as tracers to improve our knowledge of currents in the Channel and the North Sea.
Pierre Germain, deputy Director, is known for his studies on radionuclide accumulation by animal and algae species, from the whole body to the cell.
Henri Métivier, Director of Research, member of the International Committee for Radiological Protection, has long experience of Human contamination by radionuclides.
