This book addresses scientists and engineers involved in the areas of uranium mining and milling sites, clean-up measures, emissions of nuclear power plants and radioactive waste disposal, as well as political decision-makers. The topics covered are: impact on groundwater from radionuclide emission, analytical speciation techniques, chemical toxicity, radioisotope plant uptake, microbiology catalyzing U(6+) to U(4+) reduction, geochemical and reactive transport, case studies on abandoned uranium mines and milling sites, long-term storage of radioactive waste, passive in situ treatment techniques and risk assessment studies.1 shows an Eh-pH diagram for the Fe-S-U-O-H system after Little et al. (1997). According to this diagram, mackinawite is thermodynamically stable only under strongly reducing conditions. If mackinawite forms in an aquifer, the redox potentialanbsp;...
