  • Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 51.00

    The concept of removing long-lived radioactive wastes from the human environment by disposal in deep geological repositories was developed several decades ago. In the intervening years, research efforts world-wide have increased our knowledge and understanding of how underground disposal systems will function over very long periods of time. Significant... more...

  • Porewater Extraction from Argillaceous Rocks for Geochemical Characterisationby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 102.00

    The definition of the chemical and isotopic composition of the groundwater present in argillaceous formations, which are considered as potential host rocks for radioactive waste disposal, is crucial for establishing their barrier properties. Therefore, a critical review of the relevant literature on the current methods applied to extract water and... more...

  • Features, Events and Processes (FEPs) for Geologic Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 42.00

    Safety assessments of disposal sites for radioactive waste involve analyses of potential releases of radionuclides from the disposed waste and subsequent transport to the human environment. An important stage of assessment is the identification and documentation of all the features, events and processes (FEPs) that may be relevant to long-term safety.... more...

  • Nuclear Regulation Investing in Trustby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 100.00

    Good governance and efficiency in decision making by governmental authorities are increasingly dependent upon mutual trust and confidence between those authorities and the public. This workshop provided an opportunity to exchange information and views on how national nuclear regulatory organisations can improve their interface with the public. more...

  • Ancillary Benefits and Costs of Greenhouse Gas Mitigationby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 123.00

    Policies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases also have impacts on other policy goals, especially health. In some cases, these ancillary effects may be more significant than the direct greenhouse gas reduction impacts. While these relationships are generally recognised, analysis of climate policies does not systematically include them in policy... more...

  • Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactorby Michael H. Gerardi; Brittany Lytle

    Wiley 2010; US$ 63.95 US$ 57.56

    The practical guide on what to do right when biological influences cause a sequencing batch reactor to go wrong This richly illustrated, straightforward guide carries forth the legacy established by previous editions in the Wiley Wastewater Microbiology series by focusing attention on the mixed gathering of organisms cohabitating within a sequencing... more...

  • Enhanced stabilisation of municipal solid waste in bioreactor landfillsby Roberto Valencia Vazquez

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 92.95

    Municipal solid waste entombed in landfills will produce pollution in the form of landfill gas and leachate when the barriers fail in the long term. Bioreactor landfills are an alternative solution to avoid such negative impacts and to achieve a more stable residue, the so-called Final Storage Quality (FSQ) of residues. However, until now the main... more...

  • Everyday Noisesby Suzy-Jane Tanner

    Andrews UK 2010; US$ 4.49 US$ 3.82

    Everyday Noises is a beautifully illustrated children's book by well-known author Suzy-Jane Tanner. It is from a new series of books which encourage learning and play in young children, engaging them in an interactive reading experience. In Everyday Noises, young children will enjoy imitating and identifying different everyday noises with the Elephant... more...

  • Radioactive Waste in Perspectiveby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 67.00

    Large volumes of hazardous wastes are produced each year, however only a small proportion of them are radioactive. While disposal options for hazardous wastes are generally well established, some types of hazardous waste face issues similar to those for radioactive waste and also require long-term disposal arrangements. The objective of this NEA study... more...

  • Arctic Air Pollutionby B. Stonehouse

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 38.00

    Overall hangs the major question; can man-made pollution affect the delicate energy balance of the Arctic, and precipitate major climatic change worldwide? more...
