Development of Radiometric Methods and Modelling For Measurement of Sediment Transport in Coastal Systems and Rivers (IAEA Coordinated Research Project) Code No. F22074

Description

The CRP objectives will be the development of the use of natural radioactivity and naturally radioactive sediment for tracing (black sand tracing) and associated methodologies on the followings topics: Development of new technologies and methodologies to assess sediment transport in an efficient manner from natural radioactivity spectrometric measurement to complement existing techniques associated with appropriate modelling.

Development of black sand tracing to tackle challenges associated with licensing in case of the use of artificial radioactive tracer, the poor availability of such tracers, due to the lack of research reactors in many countries, as well as transportation problems.

Objectives

The CRP objectives will be the development of the use of natural radioactivity and naturally radioactive sediment for tracing (black sand tracing) and associated methodologies such as activatable tracers’ methodologies.
