      Demography and epidemics. In , an excess of CL was reported near Dounreay, Britain's other nuclear reprocessing site (Heasman et al, ).Here, the much lower radioactive discharges than at Sellafield prompted reflection on what other factor these two areas had in common. radioactive airborne and liquid discharges into the environment from nuclear power stations and nuclear reprocessing plants, as required by Article of the Basic Safety Standards Directive /59/Euratom(b). Citation and commencement 1. This Direction may be cited as the Standardised Reporting of Radioactive Discharges.

    To the Editors: In his stimulating review on nuclear pollution [NYR, November 23], M.F. Perutz presents a provocative table showing average radiation exposures to people living in the US, compared with residents of the UK. The bottom line, as presented by Perutz, is that UK residents would expect to receive about 50 percent less radiation [ ]. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) requested that the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) provide an assessment of cancer risks in populations near USNRC-licensed nuclear facilities. This assessment is being carried out in two consecutive phases. The focus of the Phase 1 scoping study, which is the subject of this report, is to identify scientifically sound approaches for carrying.

    In Canada, airborne gamma-rays surveys have been flown around nuclear reactors to map {sup 41}Ar plumes from nuclear reactors and to calculate the dose rate at ground level. In May , the Finnish Geological survey aircraft flew through a radioactive plume from the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Bulletin - United States Geological Survey, Issue ; beqix 0 Comment.

The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland published a Radioactive Discharges Strategy for the period in This Strategy was updated in to broaden its scope.

The UK Strategy for Radioactive Discharges. GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA UNITED STATES OF AMERICA URUGUAY UZBEKISTAN VENEZUELA VIETNAM YEMEN ZAMBIA ZIMBABWE The Agency’s Statute was approved on 23 October by the Conference on the Statute of the IAEA held at United Nations Headquarters, New York; it entered into force on 29 July Discharges from defence sites are excluded from reporting to the EC.

A summary of the requirements of the EC Recommendation and how this guidance meets them are shown in Appendix 1.

The purpose of the EC Recommendation is to allow radioactive discharges. The Radioactive Substances Act provides for controls to be exercised over the keeping and use of radioactive materials and, in particular, on the accumulation and disposal of radioactive wastes.

Discharges of radioactive waste to the environment are strictly controlled through authorisations granted to operators. Environmental Pollution (Series B) 5 () Radioactivity in Water from the River Lea L. Day & C. King Department of Applied Physics, North-East London Polytechnic, Romford Road, Stratford, London El5 4LZ, Great Britain ABSTRACT Water samples, taken from the River Lea, have been analysedJbr their radioactivity content using the gross beta counting technique.

Public radiological protection standards for radioactive discharges include a dose constraint of mSv (i.e. microsievert (μSv)) per year, with a requirement to reduce doses as low as reasonably practicable below this level.

In the context of radioactively contaminated land on nuclear and defence sites and radioactive waste disposal. Based on the information provided by the NDA, the annual discharges to atmosphere of plutonium/ from high stacks from are shown in Figure   Arl Annual Salary Survey 1.

The study, titled “Comparison of Wait Times for New Patients Between the Private Sector and Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers,” relied on wait-time data provided by the VA and calculated private-sector data from a survey conducted by a physicians’ search firm, Merritt Hawkins, using the so-called “secret shopper” method.Environmental Design Objectives The station design objectives for the control of radioactive discharges were to meet the general requirements of Article 37 of the Euratom Treaty.

Arisings of radioactive waste and the methods used to minimise the arisings of liquid and airborne waste are always the subject of very early detailed design.
