From the Back Cover:

Following nuclear weapon tests, radiation accidents and the mining, milling and processing of fissile and fossil materials across the globe, local environments are contaminated by radionuclides and are thus a potential source of radiation exposure of humans. This book on Remediation of Contaminated Environments covers a wide spectrum of issues such as characterization of contaminated sites before and after remediation, safety requirements, remediation planning, effectiveness of individual measures in different environments, social, ethical and economic considerations etc. It describes modern decision-aiding technologies and environmental decision-support systems that can be used effectively in remediation planning and optimization. A review of potentially effective remediation measures is given for different categories of contaminated environments and contaminants. Associated side-effects (environmental and social) are also considered. Special emphasis is given to the decommissioning of industrial sites and to waste management. Several case studies, demonstrating the successful application of the remediation of contaminated locations of different origins, radiation accidents and incidents, areas of uranium, sand and tin mining, nuclear test sites etc., are presented and discussed. Human-based remediation measures, taking into account the perceptions of this activity by local populations and by relevant stakeholders are considered in the context of decision-making on environmental safety and of the practicalities of remediation of the contaminated sites. In summary, key topics are:
. Remediation, including characterization of contaminated sites; safety requirements; remediation planning, effectiveness of individual measures in different environments;
.Social; ethical and economic consideration and application of modern decision-aiding technologies applicable to different categories of contaminated environments and contaminants, including areas contaminated by radiation accidents and incidents, by nuclear weapon tests and by natural radionuclides associated with the nuclear fuel cycle, fossil material mining and gas and oil production
. Associated side-effects (environmental and social) and human-based remediation measures, including perceptions by the population and by stakeholders and population involvement in making decisions on environmental safety and the remediation of contaminated sites
