[ RadSafe ] Radiochemical Analysis/Assessment of EnvironmentalSamples

Mike, yes there are tons of literature on radiochemical and analytical 
techniques for radionuclides, both natural and man-made ones. Choose the 
ones you are interested in and look them up on the internet.

HASL had been useful in my work on Sr-90 - but this was about four decades 
ago. Be aware that analytical methods have changed since that time!!!!!!

Maybe you find out, which radionuclides you really are interested in, if you 
find some wizard who is able to give you in one analysis the concentration 
of all man-made and natural radioactivity I would recommend you to patent 
this method.

Best regards,

Is there such a thing as a tome of radiochemistry/analytical techniques for 
generic assessment of environmental samples? Looking at things such as 
seawater, sediments, marine biota?

Looking at trying to establish baseline levels of radioactivity, input 
sources would be both man-made and potential enhanced natural radioactivity 
from industrial processes.
