The current work presents a comparative and site specific study for the application of zero-valent iron nanoparticles (nano-Fe(0)) and magnetite nanoparticles (nano-Fe(3)O(4)) for the removal of U from carbonate-rich environmental water taken from the Lişava valley, Banat, Romania. Nanoparticles were introduced to the Lişava water under surface and deep(More)
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (FDNPP) incident released a significant mass of radioactive material into the atmosphere. An estimated 22% of this material fell out over land following the incident. Immediately following the disaster, there was a severe lack of information not only pertaining to the identity of the radioactive material released,(More)
PURPOSE To establish a training data set of digital images and to investigate the scoring criteria and dose assessment of the dicentric assay within the European network of biodosimetry (RENEB), a web based scoring inter-comparison was undertaken by 17 RENEB partners. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two sets of 50 high resolution images were uploaded onto the RENEB(More)
Although contaminant removal from water using zero-valent iron nanoparticles (INP) has been investigated for a wide array of chemical pollutants, the majority of studies to date have only examined the reaction of INP in simple single-contaminant systems. Such systems fail to reproduce the complexity of environmental waters and consequently fail as(More)
Primary hyperparathyroidism is a common endocrine disorder that is mostly caused by solitary tumors within the parathyroid glands. Characterized by early debut and higher frequency of multiple parathyroid masses, familial forms of primary hyperparathyroidism are caused by the already known mutations of: menin (MEN1 syndrome), RET proto-oncogene (MEN2(More)
In plant accident management, the control room operators are required to identify the causes of the accident, based on the different patterns of evolution of the monitored process variables thereby developing. This task is often quite challenging, given the large number of process parameters monitored and the intense emotional states under which it is(More)
