The tsunami that wiped out a nuclear plant on the coast of Japan and lead to a triple meltdown has been an enormous setback for the promoters of fission-generated power. But of the four fundamental forces of nature, it is gravity, not nuclear, that has caused the most casualties at Fukushima. The death toll from the crashing waves killed some 20,000 people. But no one, including emergency workers at the plant, has died from the radiation, and no one has yet been diagnosed with a radiation-induced cancer. It is still very early. Ionizing rays” the kind powerful enough to break... More →

Over the past few years, C&A personnel (now I2M Associates personnel) noticed an increase in the number of poorly written, inaccurate, and deceptive articles that were produced by various types of media on the subject of nuclear power, uranium exploration and mining, and associated environmental issues. These reports came from the national media, national and local adversarial groups, local citizen's groups and the attorneys who represent them. Because they all seem to have many shortcomings in common, C&A personnel began in 2007 to examine them in some detail. Effective April 1, 2010,... More →

Texas has been the location of the greatest number of uranium in-situ recovery (ISR) mines in in the United States and was the incubator for the development of alkaline leach technology in this country. For that reason, the author chose to focus on the effectiveness of restoration at ISR mines by examining legacy mines developed in Texas. The best source for accurate information about restoration at Texas ISR mines is housed at the TCEQ offices in Austin. The bulk of this research is an analysis of those records.... More →

There is now a growing recognition that nuclear power makes a significant contribution to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. Worldwide, nuclear power plants currently save some 10 per cent of total carbon dioxide (CO2 ) emissions from world energy use. This represents an immense saving of greenhouse gas emissions that would otherwise be contributing to global warming. If the world were not using nuclear power, emissions of CO2 would be some 2.5 billion tonnes higher per year. Nuclear power plants emit no greenhouse gas emissions at point of generation and very small quantities over th... More →

IAEA TECHNICAL REPORTS SERIES No. 416 - 2003

Identification of archaeological artefacts according to morphological or stylistic criteria sometimes cannot be readily achieved between different production sites or origins based on visual inspection alone. Chemical analysis, together with statistical data treatment, is used extensively to supplement archaeological investigations when provenance studies or socioeconomic aspects are concerned. A number of different analytical techniques have been applied with varying degrees of success, but all of them need to have multi-element capabili... More →

IAEA Technical Reports Series No. 442

This report addresses the remediation of co-mingled radioactive and other hazardous contaminants found within various media, including surface water, groundwater and soil (including geological media). In part, the report is designed to provide Member States with an overview of some of the added challenges that are encountered in the remediation of such sites, beyond working at sites solely contaminated with radionuclides. In addition, the report provides an overview of the technologies that can be applied to remediate such sites. This report is ... More →

In 1996, an interim record of decision was issued for the 300-FF-5 Operable Unit on the Hanford Site in southeast Washington State. The record of decision specified the interim remedy as (1) continued monitoring of groundwater and (2) institutional controls to restrict groundwater use. This record of decision was based on a remedial investigation that suggested levels of uranium would decrease with time because of natural geochemical and hydrologic processes. A prediction was made that concentrations of uranium would decrease to the proposed drinking water standard or lower (20 μg/L) ... More →

In my work as a health physicist, I do a lot of public speaking and interact with the public on issues related to development of uranium mining and milling ("uranium recovery") in the U.S. Understandingly, the public has important concerns about this. In a "question and answer" format below, I have tried to capture what are some of the most common concerns heard from citizens and address them based on the best scientific information we have, representing information well documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature and consensus positions from both national and interna...

We are continuously bombarded with radiation We are continuously bombarded with radiation energy from space and from the earth energy from space and from the earth surface. We take in radioactive materials with the air we breath, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Our bodies contain radioactive materials. Our biosphere is powered by nuclear fusion reactions in the sun reactions in the sun.

Uranium mill tailings contain the radioactive element radium, which decays to produce radon, a radioactive gas. The radium in these tailings will not decay entirely for thousands of years. The mill tailings pose a potential hazard to public health and safety. To provide for the disposal, long-term stabilization, and control of these mill tailings in a safe and environmentally sound manner and to minimize or eliminate radiation health hazards to the public, Congress enacted the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978 (UMTRCA). This Act established two programs to protect the public ... More →
