Ecosystem approach to environment protection
2011-05-27 >> Task Group completed or in termination phase

[ François Bréchignac (francois.brechignac@irsn.fr) ]
  Overall context In recent years, under the notable incentive of an IUR Task Group initiated as early as 1997, the issue of the protection of the environment from ionizing radiation has evolved and is now a major topic for radioecologists. Several International Organizations (IAEA, UNSCEAR, EC, ICRP) and national Institutions (US DoE, CNSC Canada, NIRS Japan, IRSN France,… Read more >>

Mediterranean Fruit Radioecology
2003-06-25 >> Task Group completed or in termination phase

The activity of this Task Group has been closely associated to the IAEA BIOMASS Programme that was recently ended. Although there is still a need to complete radioecological data base, and to expand to better knowledge on radionuclides transfer to fruits in all climatic conditions, the reduced present activity in this field does not justify today the maintenance of an IUR Task Group.… Read more >>
