Description

Limited information exists on the movement and partitioning of 235U series radionuclides following their release to the environment from activities associated with the nuclear fuel cycle. Only three isotopes in the series, 235U, 231Pa and 227Ac, have half-lives greater than a month. The extent to which the radiologically-significant isotopes of the 235U series differentiate and fractionate in the environment, and then accumulate in biota, is largely controlled by the chemical properties of...[Show more]
