Dose rates to aquatic life near a U waste site.

Abstract

Radiation dose rates to aquatic organisms have been estimated from radionuclide levels in fish, in water and in the sediments near an abandoned U waste site. The dose rates in the sediments were high (0.5 Gy y-1). Whitefish received dose rates of 10 mGy y-1 from internal 226Ra and could have received comparable external dose rates from the sediments when… (More)
