We examine subsurface uranium (U) plumes at two U.S. Department of Energy sites that are located near large river systems and are influenced by groundwater-river hydrologic interaction. Following surface excavation of contaminated materials, both sites were projected to naturally flush remnant uranium contamination to levels below regulatory limits (e.g.,(More)
Recent work suggests that between 50 and 75% of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) tumours have specific high-affinity binding sites for somatostatin. This study evaluated the potential role of the radiolabelled somatostatin analogue, ["l'In]pentetreotide, in the detection and staging of SCLC in patients prior to and after chemotherapy using scintigraphic(More)
In this study, we report the results of in situ U(VI) bioreduction experiments at the Integrated Field Research Challenge site in Rifle, Colorado, USA. Columns filled with sediments were deployed into a groundwater well at the site and, after a period of conditioning with groundwater, were amended with a mixture of groundwater, soluble U(VI), and acetate to(More)
Important reactive phenomena that affect the transport and fate of many elements occur at the mineral-water interface (MWI), including sorption and redox reactions. Fundamental knowledge of these phenomena are often based on observations of ideal mineral-water systems, for example, studies of molecular scale reactions on single crystal faces or the surfaces(More)
