Overview

Forty-three contributions written primarily by Russian nuclear scientists, government and naval scientists, researchers in industrial and marine medicine, and many others provide a broad perspective on the decommissioning of nuclear powered vessels. Sections address current issues in nuclear vessel decommissioning and utilization including the status and issues related to the work in Russia, France, and the US; risks associated with decommissioning nuclear vessels and submarines; and industrial issues. Other sections include coverage of international cooperation; radioecology, radiation, and safety issues; spent nuclear fuel issues; radioactive waste management; submarines with liquid metal coolant; and special topics including the development of computer models and information support systems and creating adequate public opinion in Russian regions for nuclear submarine utilization and radioactive waste management.
