    Rare noisy observations of the dissolved and suspended Cs , and the dissolved Sr 90 collected for years and , respectively, are utilized through an inverse method to estimate the radionuclide pollution and the mixing time scale, namely the age, of the White and Kara Seas. We demonstrate how uncertainties, such as measurement noise, inhomogeneous station disposition and others.

Russia announces enormous finds of radioactive waste and nuclear reactors in Arctic seas. Enormous quantities of decommissioned Russian nuclear reactors and radioactive waste were dumped into the Kara Sea in the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia over a course of decades, according to documents given to Norwegian officials by .

      A scientific expedition to Novaya Zemlya has discovered “big concentrations of radioactivity” in the ice — and concluded that the glaciers are melting into the sea at record speed. The primary goals for the Russian researchers were to study whether hundreds of containers with dumped radioactive waste in the Kara Sea were leaking or not. and Kara Seas. (See table.) Arctic Sea dumping in perspective Until its amendment in the London Convention prohibited the disposal at sea of high-level radioactive waste but allowed, under special permit, the dumping of other types of radioactive waste. Much of the material dumped in the Kara Sea falls into the category of high-level waste.

Radioactive pollution results from the discharge of contaminated water from industry, the disposal of radioactive waste, and accidental contamination following mechanical failure on atomic submarines.

Several areas in the Russian Arctic seas have been exposed to significant contamination by radionuclides. The Marine organisms are very sensitive to the radiation. The pollution by active radiation will lead to instability in contaminated marine areas. If the sea is polluted, then the living creatures whose habitat at sea will feel the consequences.

The danger of radiation contamination at sea, it is not only dangerous for marine animals only. The six objects represent more than 90 percent of the radioactivity sources dumped to sea, Rosatom explains.

The remaining dumped objects are considered of little danger. Radioactivity and Pollution in the Nordic Seas and Arctic: Observations, Modeling and Simulations (Springer Praxis Books) th Edition.

These forms of long-range transport include strong south-to-north airflows, northward-flowing Arctic rivers which can lead to local and regional dispersal of contaminants, and ice and ocean currents that can store and transport pollution.

The Arctic is vulnerable to radioactive pollution transported from distant sources, whether by ocean. “Arctic Pollution: A State of the Arctic Environment Report” – the first report prepared by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) in It was published in Russian in It is a result of joint efforts of more than scientists and administrators.

From throughthirteen countries used ocean disposal or ocean dumping as a method to dispose of nuclear/radioactive waste materials included both liquids and solids housed in various containers, as well as reactor vessels, with and without spent or damaged nuclear fuel.

Sinceocean disposal has been banned by international treaties. A British nuclear fuels plant has repeatedly released radioactive waste into the Irish Sea, a French nuclear reprocessing plant has discharged similar waste into the English Channel, and for decades the Soviets dumped large quantities of radioactive material into the Arctic Ocean, Kara Sea, and Barents Sea.

[Ola M Johannessen;] -- "Polar Seas Oceanography" describes a new tool called the Generic Model System for simulations and assessment of potential radioactive spreading in the Arctic regions, through rivers, estuaries.

This study is the result of many years of research on the ecology of the marine benthos of Russian Arctic seas. We used samples collected at various locations from the Russian continental shelf during – as the basis of our study.

Sea transport of pollutants to the Arctic is controlled by the current systems and the layering in the sea. Transport of pollutants in the sea is a slow process and it may take years before they reach the Arctic.

They may then remain in the sea for a few years up to several centuries.interpretation of data on marine radioactivity in the Arctic Seas.

This report provides comprehensive information on environmental conditions in the Arctic Seas as required for the study of possible radiological consequences from dumped high level radioactive wastes in the Kara Sea.

The report describes the oceanography of the regions.Radioactive pollution is the presence of radioactive substances in the environment. These substances are known as pollutants because they can cause damage to the environment. Animals, plants and humans can all fall ill due to radioactive pollution.
