This book provides a study of radiation and environmental safety in north-west Russia. International experts from several related fields offer a thorough understanding of the present status. They suggest how to develop the use of overall risk assessments and environmental impact assessments to ensure a sound use of resources when carrying out the tremendous work that must be carried out to clean up the cold war legacy.
Risks to health, environment and safety (workers and public)
Short term and long term risks
Radiological and non-radiological risks
Major accidents (both preventing them and mitigating effects if they occur), and small incidents and normal situations
