Analysis of Nuclear Traces in the Environment
Institute for Transuranium Elements
The objectives of this action are to further develop and provide assessed methods for the analysis of traces of radioactive and nuclear materials in the environment. The action is focusing on providing a better determination of the origin and sources of man-made radionuclides in the environment and a better comprehension of the mechanisms connected to their environmental impact. Upon request by Member States authorities, the action, in coordination and complementarity with other JRC#s environmental actions, aims to provide support by offering a range of expertise and experimental tools for characterizing radioactivity in environmental bulk and particle samples.
