The Editors have excitement in providing an additional quantity within the se­ ries to our overseas viewers. maybe the main major occasion of the passing yr has been the booklet through the IAEA of its learn of the prob­ lem of continuous radiation defense within the lands surrounding Chernobyl. the key overseas undertaking undertaken in 1990 and mentioned in 1991 is worthy analyzing, not just for its overview of ways radiation safety intervention will be utilized de facto in coincidence stipulations, yet both for its account of the trendy view of the philosophy of radiation defense. a few could, even though, desire to argue that the acknowledgement through Iraq of its three-pronged improvement of nuclear guns in stipulations of secrecy and antagonism used to be both major and certainly as a lot a deter­ minant of the way forward for peaceable nuclear energy because the Chernobyl coincidence. however it needs to be transparent that the advancements of guns and electrical energy seasoned­ duction should not inescapably sure jointly; the Iraqi guns software used to be now not associated with any peaceable strength development.

The reaction of the carbonate radical ion, COf', is not known for many solutes and therefore this process is considered as a loss of reactive species with no removal of solute. It is possible that the removal efficiency would be affected by the presence of this radical and further studies are necessary to determine the effects. 3 Nitrate Ion When comparing the removal of solutes in potable water and secondary wastewater, the presence of higher concentrations of nitrate ion (N03 1 -) in the secondary wastewater may have effected solute removal efficiency by acting as an e-(aq) scavenger.

20J A third feature is the presence of significant concentrations of Ho that may react with solutes of interest and increase the efficiency of removal of some toxic organic compounds.
