|Anomalous Radionuclide Diffusion in Highly Heterogeneous Geological Formations|
V. M. Goloviznin, P. S. Kondratenko, L. V. Matveev et al.
In the monograph some of the most perspective physical and mathematical models that were investigated at NSI RAS in the framework of new technique development for safety evaluation of radioactive waste disposal in geological formations are presented. In order to describe nonclassical anomalous radionuclide transport in highly eterogeneous porous media the models of fractional diffusion, stochastic advection, diffusion in percolation cluster, etc. are suggested. Computational methods and results of numerical calculations are given. In addition, a review of field and laboratory experiment results is presented.
The assumed target for specialists and students in the field of modelling of safety evaluation of radioactive waste.

Supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (Project 07-08-13543-ofi_ts), the monograph summarizes the results of many years’ work of the authors as well as of many scientists and specialists from various agencies on safety for decommissioning of radiation-hazardous facilities of the nuclear fleet in Northwest Russia. The attention focuses on the justification and methodology of long-term strategic planning of nuclear submarine complex decommissioning with the task of fast decrease of existing radiation risks, rationalizing operations and reducing the related costs. For the first time in the domestic literature, the concept of ‘Strategic Master Plan’ is formulated, and the basis for its generation is considered including characterization of necessary procedures used in its development.
For professionals in design and lifecycle (including decommissioning) of nuclear power facilities and for a wide range of scientists and experts in strategic planning of various science-and-technology areas.

|Ensuring the Regulatory and Legal Safety during Decommissioning of Nuclear- and Radiation-Hazardous Facilities of Russian Nuclear Fleet|
À.I. Iojrysh, À.À. Kozodubov, V.G. Markarov, V.G. Terentiev and À.B. Chopornyak
The book focuses on analysis of the basic laws; regulations and legal acts of the President and the Government of Russia; and federal rules and regulations related to decommissioning of nuclear and radiation hazardous facilities of Russian nuclear fleet. The international regime for safe use of nuclear energy and environmental safety is analyzed as applied to the processes of complex decommissioning of Russian nuclear fleet and environmental rehabilitation of temporary storage facilities including their terrestrial and aquatic areas. The implementation of requirements and recommendations of international conventions and international organizations into the RF legislation is considered.
For professionals in nuclear, radiation and environmental safety as well as for everyone interested in the problems of legal safety support to decommissioning of nuclear- and radiation-hazardous facilities of Russian nuclear fleet.

|Approaches and Principles of Radiation Protection of Water Bodies|
S.V. Kazakov and S.S. Utkin
The monograph discusses the key approaches to radiation protection of the environment and compares the indices and criteria regulating the quality of water bodies. Two fundamental points are put forward: the need to move from the anthropocentric and environmental principles of regulation to the biospheric approach for radiation protection of the environment; and the need to address integrated water-resource management when regulating radiation quality of water bodies. The application of biospheric approach was demonstrated within the frameworks of the modified hygienic principle that allows resolving most of the contradictions between the anthropocentric and environmental approaches and is much more promising area of developing the environment radiation-protection system compared to the fundamental review of the current paradigms. The developed models enable calculations of permissible single and annual radionuclide effluents and discharges to water bodies taking into account a sophisticated pattern of their redistribution between biotic and abiotic components in aquatic ecosystems.
The book is recommended for radio-ecologists and specialists in regulation of the effects of ionizing radiation.
