Approaches and Principles of Radiation Protection of Water BodiesApproaches and Principles of Radiation Protection of Water Bodies


S.V. Kazakov and S.S. Utkin

‘Nauka’ Publishers

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.
