    Background and Scope of Workshop

    Anthropogenic radionuclides (ARs) that are generated by nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium have been released to environment in nuclear power plants, reprocessing facilities, and nuclear weapon tests. The radiotoxicity of the ARs may affect human health and eco-systems for a long period of time. The first step of radioecological evaluation of the ARs is to understand their migration in surface and subsurface environments, where ARs react with solid phases in soils and rocks. The solid phases contain various components, ranging from minerals, natural organic materials, and microorganisms; thus, the ARs change their chemical species at the interfaces between water and these solid phases in many ways. The workshop will focus on the fate of ARs at the solid-solution interfaces and their radioecological impacts. Two main topics will be presented during the workshop: #1: Speciation and migration of RNs in environment #2: Radiation effect on transformation of RNs
