This publication presents a sound knowledge base for conducting radiotracer studies in the environment, with papers on radiotracer methodology, radiation protection and regulation, data analysis and modelling. Environmental case histories from five Member States — Australia, Brazil, France, the Republic of Korea and Sweden — are included. The publication summarizes the current status of radiotracer applications in surface water environments and addresses challenges to the use of radiotracers in the environment, such as dose assessment, public perception, regulatory status and gaps.
