Understanding Radionuclides in Water Resources 

Water is often called our most precious resource. When it comes to studying radiological environmental matters, the topic of water is foremost among many people’s concerns. Thorough scientific analysis can play a vital role in accurate evaluations and communication of results and risks.

Southwest Research Institute’s E-Guide to Understanding Radionuclides in Water Resources provides an overview of how water studies can help resolve radiological environmental challenges. This guide provides information on:

  • Analyze and quantify normally occurring radioactive material (NORM) and technology enhanced (TENORM) affected sites
  • An overview of procedures to sample water and the analytical tests that can determine radiological content
  • Developing conceptual and numerical models to predict hydrologic and geological impacts
