"Nuclear sites become contaminated with radionuclides due to accidents and activities carried out without due consideration for the environment. Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) released by industrial processes such as coal power production and fertilizer manufacture may also require clean-up. Environmental remediation and restoration aim to reduce exposure to radiation form contaminated soil or groundwater. Environmental Remediation and restoration of Contaminated Nuclear and NORM Sites provides a comprehensive overview of this area. Part One provides an introduction to the different types of contaminated sites and their characteristics. The opening section explores radioactive contamination and the impacts of waste from nuclear and conventional power plants, as well as radionuclide behavior in the natural environment. Part Two addresses environmental restoration frameworks and processes. Chapters include stakeholder involvement, international guidance and risk assessment in, and for, the restoration of contaminated nuclear and NORM sites. The final section presents expert analysis of remediation techniques and waste disposal"--Back cover
