Abstract:

"The long-term effects of the Chernobyl incident on the environment are still becoming apparent, twenty years after the event. This book, written by two researchers with frontline experience in this field, provides a detailed review of these over a wide range of ecosystems. It also discusses the responses and countermeasures utilised to combat the effects of the accident, as well as considering the health, social, psychological and economic impacts on the human population. This book adds valuable weight to the debate about the environmental cost of nuclear power and the issue of nuclear safety."--BOOK JACKET.
