I'll be taking a close look at Health Physics Journal from a geologist's
perspective. Having worked 2 years on a Chernobyl cleanup-strategy project
in country (Sosny Labs near Minsk), I'd like to see if the articles include
fate and distribution of R/Ns in geological media, and the mechanism of
sequestration for various radionuclides.

Don't want to dwell on proliferation, but what follows. I
think, needs to be said.
Some of the smaller nations of the world, with nuclear weapons
on hand, or are in the process of
building their first nuclear devices, seem to need 100's or more
centrifuges. Hmmmm, actually, I think
a small nation or a handful of scientists/engineers (nowadays) could
do some pretty severe
U235 or Pu enrichment with 5-10 centrifuges or less. Probably one
could have fewer centrifuges
and round the clock shifts of people running the centrifuges. Let's
be careful out there.
On an unrelated topic, Health Physics scientific journal
currently has a whole issue on Chernobyl.
Browse it, read it, etc, even the geologists on radsafe.
Have a good week at work....
