From throughthirteen countries (fourteen, if the USSR and Russia are considered separately) used ocean disposal or ocean dumping as a method to dispose of nuclear/ radioactive waste. The waste materials included both liquids and solids housed in various containers, as well as reactor vessels.

A key feature of the model is the representation of the spatial layout of the disposal site, including the engineered cap design and the large-scale spatial heterogeneity of radionuclide concentrations within the : Tim.

Abstract. Natural and man-made radioactivities in the environment have been extensively researched in the second half of this century. Recently, increased attention has been given to (1) radioactive waste willfully placed in the environment by discharges from nuclear reprocessing plants or by dumping at sea, and (2) radioactive materials lost due to accidents in terrestrial.

The belief that storing radioactive waste in the depths of the world’s oceans is a foolproof strategy of getting rid of this waste is an extremely flawed idea.

Storing radioactive waste in the ocean is harmful to the organisms that inhabit the ocean and to humans as well due to radiation and in addition is a very expensive process.

Thus, the radiological impact to man and the arctic environment of the observed leakages from dumped radioactive waste today, is considered to be low. Assuming all radionuclides are released from the waste, preliminary assessments indicate a collective dose to the world population of less than 50 man by: A Sensitivity Analysis of a Radiological Assessment Model for Arctic Waters S.P.
