This book presents a comprehensive study of the environmental situation prevailingin the areas located near the Koshkar-Ata (Kazakhstan) tailings dump and thedevelopment of rehabilitation measures taking into account the area’s soil and climaticfeatures. Given their impact on the local population’s health, rehabilitation activitiesand their monitoring are vital for countries where nuclear power technologies aredeveloped and where uranium mining industry wastes exist. Book analyzes the negative influences of the tailings on soil and vegetation coveron near-ground atmospheric layers and groundwater. Based on radiometric, field andlaboratory analytical research methods, it presents quantitative information on thelevels of pollution of the environment by radionuclides and chemical toxicants, andincludes the results of constant monitoring of dust from radioactive and toxic wastes inthe area. The book also offers recommendations for technical solutions for reclaimingradioactive tailing ponds, as well as for the development of disposal sites for radioactivewaste in the tailing ponds, based on effective rehabilitation technologies developedat two control sites. The study attracted considerable interest from the Republic ofKazakhstan’s state authorities and public organizations, and raised awareness of theneed for rehabilitation measures at the KOSHKAR-ATA tailing pond. The monographis intended for specialists in the field of environmental protection and radiation ecology,as well as senior undergraduate and graduate students, doctoral students and youngscientists. This publication is recommended by the Academic Council of the L.N.Gumilyov Eurasian National University.
