The legacy of nuclear contamination in the former Soviet Union presents an extremely grave challenge, not just for Russia and the other successor republics, but for the rest of the world too. This volume presents the first authoritative and detailed information available in the West. It gives the location and characteristics of the accumulated radioactive material and wastes by each sector, from ore and mining to use and disposal. This includes the volume and activity, nuclide composition, state and concentration, and discharges to the environment. It describes type of storage, capacity and utilization, age and location. It gives information on the territories and locations contaminated, by normal operations and by accidents, from which strategic plans for remediation can be formulated.
