# The three-volume monograph “Behavior of Radionuclides in the Environment” was published with the participation of scientists of the ISP NPP of the NAS of Ukraine

Employees of the Institute for Safety Problems of Nuclear Power Plants of the NAS of Ukraine participated in the preparation of the author’s chapters for the three-volume monograph “Behavior of Radionuclides in the Environment”. The publication was launched in 2020 by the Springer publishing house. The book is registered in the SCOPUS international scientometric database.

The monograph is devoted to the impact of the three largest radiation accidents on the environment in the history of mankind: at the Maiak plant in Kyshtym (1957), at the Chornobyl NPP (1986), and at the Fukushima-1 NPP (2011).

In the second volume, the behavior of radionuclides of Chornobyl origin was considered, including their distribution in the atmosphere, secondary rise, behavior in agricultural ecosystems.

So far, the third volume has been published, in which the radio-ecological problems of the accident at the Fukushima-1 NPP is considered. It contains the section “Model of Radionuclide Uptake by Plants via Foliar Pathway: Kyshtym, Chornobyl, Fukushima”, which analyzes the application of the mathematical dynamic model developed at the ISP NPP of the NAS of Ukraine for forecasting radioactive contamination of plants as a result of radiation accidents.

Among the authors of the chapters of the three-volume monograph are academician of the NAS of Ukraine, prof. Anatolii Nosovskyi; academician of the UAAS, prof. Borys Prister; Dr. of physical and mathematical sciences, prof. Yevgen Garger; Dr. of technical siences Mykola Talerko; Ph. D. in geological sciences, senior researcher Tetiana Lev.

The material presented in the book will be useful for researchers, students and postgraduates who study radioecological problems in case of environmental pollution due to accidents at nuclear power plants.
