Radionuclides in the Environment, Radioecology
Radioactive materials were released to the environment from the Tokyo Electric Power Company Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP1) as a result of reactor accidents caused by a total loss of electric power (black out) after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. Radioactive materials were emitted into the atmosphere and transferred to the land and ocean through wet and dry...

Nuclear Analytical Methods
In the studies of radioecology, investigation of environmental radioactivity and environmental processes using radionuclide tracer, as well as characterisation of nuclear waste for decommissioning of nuclear facilities and depository of radioactive waste, nuclear forensics and geological dating using radioisotopes, the key issue is to accurate determination of concentration of various...

Chemistry of Actinide and Trans-actinide Elements
With the discovery of six new elements in the past decade an extraordinary expansion of the Periodic Table took place, so that now all elements of the 7th period have been synthesized. This success was possible by exploiting the concept of “warm” fusion using the available, neutron-rich actinide target materials and the tightly bound, doubly magic projectile 48-Ca . Most of these discovery...
