RADIOACTIVITY INVESTIGATIONS IN THE CACHE CREEK AREA, YENTNA DISTRICT, ALASKA, By G. EOBINSON, HELMUTH WEDOW, JR., and J.

Social and Ethical Aspects of Radiation Risk Management provides a comprehensive treatment of the major ethical and social issues resulting from the use of ionizing radiation. It covers topics such as nuclear fuel cycles, radioactive waste treatment, nuclear bomb testing, nuclear safety management, stakeholder engagement, cleanup after nuclear accidents, ecological risks from radiation.

Radioactivity: Introduction and History provides an introduction to radioactivity from natural and artificial sources on earth and radiation of cosmic origins. This book answers many questions for the student, teacher, and practitioner as to the origins, properties, detection and measurement, and applications of radioactivity.

Written at a level that most students and teachers can appreciate 3/5(1). The worst nuclear accident to date was the Chernobyl disaster which occurred in in accident killed 31 people directly and damaged approximately $7 billion of property.

A study published in by the World Health Organization estimates that Yenta District may eventually be up to 4, additional cancer deaths related to the accident among those exposed to significant radiation levels.

Fukushima Radiation Concerns in Alaska. Since the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami, which damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Alaska have been concerns about radiation impacts to Alaska. The Division of Environmental Health (DEH) has been coordinating with the Department of Health & Social Services (DHSS) Division of.

Marshall area were worked from the 30th Engineer's field camp at Holy Cross. The southern Kaiyuh Moun- tains area was covered from the 30th Engineer's field camp on the east bank of the Yukon River 55 miles southeast of Unalakleet.

Field investigations in the three areas consisted of airborne radioactivity traversing and traversing. A "highly unusual aerosol particle containing a very small amount of enriched uranium" was tracked at an altitude of seven kilometers above Alaska's Aleutian Islands, according Yenta District a US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) study published by the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity.

The scientists underscored that the particle with the enriched uranium was spotted for. Blue Creek, it’s hoped, will eventually flush its pollution downstream and dilute it in the Spokane River. The plan is expected to cost $ million.

Heightened radioactivity levels were found outside a nuclear waste tank in the US state of Washington, officials said Friday, in a new alert about a site used to make Cold War-era bombs.

Naturally occurring radiation brought to the surface by gas drillers has been detected in a Pennsylvania creek that flows into the Allegheny River, illustrating the risks of wastewater disposal.

While the science behind nuclear physics is as complicated as anything that man has ever attempted, some facts are simple to explain. For instance, some nuclear “bits” (to choose an easy-to-understand word) last for billions of years and some only for a short period of time.

Also, some of these “bits” are only produced as a side product of nuclear bomb testing.The AEC said that nowhere outside the immediate area of the test was the fallout dangerous to human life or health.
