This collection of articles, together with the two previous companion publications of 1995 and 1997, represent the most complete set of materials on the issues relating to nuclear submarine utilisation and safety when managing spent nuclear fuel and radioactive wastes. The book is indispensable for scientists, engineers, shipyard technicians and decision makers in the fields of radioecology and the management of decommissioned hazardous radiation facilities that were constructed for other than their present purposes.
