In general this book is good as an Introduction to radioactive minerals. It covers the formation, localities and the minerals itself. It is thus quite broad, and the only book of which I know that covers the wordlwide occurence of uranium and thorium by: 2.

The 6 page appendix called Checklist of Radioactive Minerals includes what group the are in, The Chemical Formula, Color and UV Fluorescent color.

For those collecting radioactive minerals it is a much needed Listing. I think those interested in Rock collecting can really enjoy the information and the way it is presented in this book.

Introduction to Radioactive Minerals, by Robert Lauf. Focusing on uranium and thorium, this book provides an excellent introduction to radioactive minerals, including how they are formed, mined, and used. It also provides advice on how and where you can collect them.

Tundraco: A. Introduction to radioactive minerals in North Carolina. Raleigh, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, State or province government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Richard J Councill. Radioactive materials are used for diagnostic radiology, radiation medicine, and radiopharmaceuticals.

Radiation hazards also exist wherever radioactive materials are stored or radioactive waste products are discarded. Fires involving radioactive materials can result in widespread Size: 45KB.

This book discusses effects of radioactivity on the geological environment, emphasizing those aspects of the subject likely to be encountered by the geologists working in the field. It covers radioactive minerals, exploration, analytical methods, radioactivity and age dating, radioactive heat production and more.

An Introduction to Nuclear Waste Immobilisation, Third Edition examines nuclear waste issues, including natural levels of radionuclides in the environment, the geological disposal of waste-forms, and their long-term behavior.

It covers all-important aspects of processing and immobilization, including nuclear decay, regulations, new technologies. Potassium (% of all potassium) with a half-life of billion years. Since there is so little of this isotope compared to stable Potassium potassium minerals are not considered radioactive (although they all are, to a tiny degree).

That means that essentially all radioactive minerals contain either uranium or thorium. Radioactive minerals are also critically important as our source of nuclear energy.

Understanding them is crucial to the safe disposal of radioactive waste. \nThis book provides a systematic overview of the mineralogy of uranium and thorium, generously illustrated with nearly color photos and electron micrographs of representative : For students of geology, this book offers a systematic overview of uranium and thorium minerals, which are known Size: 8 1/2″ x 11″ | color images | pp ISBN | Binding: hard cover.

The 20 chapters in 'An Introduction to Nuclear Waste Immobilisation' cover all important aspects of immobilisation, from nuclear decay, to regulations, to new technologies and methods.

Significant focus is given to the analysis of the various matrices used in transport: cement, bitumen and glass, with the greatest attention being given to glass.

Long-lived radioactive waste from the back end of the fuel cycle is especially relevant when designing a complete waste management plan for spent nuclear fuel (SNF). When looking at long term radioactive decay, the actinides in the SNF have a significant influence due to their characteristically long half-lives.

japanese book. Introduction to Radioactive : Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. The book would really be a great introduction for anyone interested in earth history, fossils, minerals, and global climate and other interesting areas of earth study.

It would make a great gift to any young student, or rock hounder. Every time I pick it up I find facinating information on evolution, or oil shale, or trilobites.

The introduction includes safety information, a summary of economic reserves, and a brief survey of characterization techniques for radioactive minerals including several examples of the use of instant photographic film for autoradiography.

The book is divided into three sections: categorization and genesis. Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium expands upon the author's previous work on the subject, a page paperback entitled Introduction to Radioactive Minerals.

Although the books have a similar chapter structure, the page Mineralogy of Uranium and Thorium includes crystal structure diagrams and the 3D crystal visualization software. The book "Minerals" offers an important and thorough overview on different geophysical methods including gravity, magnetic and self-potential in mineral exploration, as well as physical and chemical analysis in delineating the minerals.

Furthermore, the book describes the different types of minerals such as clay and its minerals, and uranium (which contains radioactive elements) and how to use.

Have you understood how to get it. After downloading the soft file of this Introduction To Radioactive Minerals, you can begin to read it. You could also mix a few categories, for example these days I try to collect: fluorescent minerals, well formed radioactive crystals, well formed non-radioactive crystals, & any large crystals.

Of course on of my goals is to find as many different species of minerals I can, but I won’t mass massive piles of each, only a very select number of.

Reflecting rapid changes in our knowledge of the earth's chemistry, this revision is more quantitative, gives more attention to environmental issues, and places greater emphasis on the application of geochemistry to geological problems than its predecessor.

Using examples from actual field and laboratory studies, the authors give students a feeling for the application of geochemistry for many 5/5(1). Radioactive minerals are also critically important as our source of nuclear energy.

A mineral is, broadly speaking, a solid chemical compound that occurs naturally in pure form. Minerals are most commonly associated with rocks due to the presence of minerals within rocks. These rocks may consist of one type of mineral, or may be an aggregate of two or more different types of minerals, spacially segregated into distinct nds that occur only in living beings are.
