Methods for analyzing the hydrogeological characteristics of the aquifiers in the vicinity of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant

     The monograph contains results of the coordinated research project conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency with the purpose to explore the use of new isotope techniques together with conventional ones to better assess the hydrogeological conditions in the geological settings of nuclear power plant sites and to provide basic information that may be used for predicting the fate of radioactive contaminants, such as tritium, released into groundwater in case of a radiological accident and/or during normal operations. To this end, research projects were conducted in ten countries…

Comprehensive radioecological monitoring for objects of radioactively contaminated areas

The principles of forming an optimal network of radioecological monitoring of contaminated territories for acute and remote periods after a radiation accident are outlined, which takes into account the ecological features of the territory. A comprehensive system for assessing the degree of radioecological criticality of the territory, forecasting the radiation situation, monitoring the agrosphere and radiation quality control of products on different spatial scales has been developed.

Scattering and bound states in a system of several particles

     The monograph deals with scattering and bound states in a system of several particles. In the area of intermediate energies, elastic collisions, reactions of nucleon transfer, collapse and scattering with excitation of low-lying collective states of target nuclei were analyzed on the basis of the diffraction nuclear model. A microscopic formalism has been developed, which makes it possible to perform highly accurate calculations of cross sections and polarization characteristics of reactions. In the area of low energies, using the formalism of Fadeev’s integral equations and the method of…
