Decommissioning of Facilities: General Safety Requirements
Decommissioning is the last step in the lifetime management of a facility. It must also be considered during the design, construction, commissioning and operation of facilities. This publication establishes requirements for the safe decommissioning of a broad range of facilities: nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities, facilities for processing naturally occurring radioactive material, former military sites, and relevant medical, industrial and research facilities. It addresses all the aspects of decommissioning that are required to ensure safety, aspects such as roles and responsibilities, strategy and planning for decommissioning, conduct of decommissioning actions and termination of the authorization for decommissioning. It is intended for use by those involved in policy development, regulatory control and implementation of decommissioning.

Isotope Hydrology and Integrated Water Resources Management: Proceedings of an International Symposium held in Vienna, Austria, 19-23 May 2003
Global effects to overcome the growing challenge of freshwater availability have been at the forefront of the world development agenda for nearly three decades. For developing policies towards sustainable management of freshwater resources, an improved understanding of the Earth's water cycle bas been widely recognized as one of the key elements of scientific information.The IAEA has played a crucial role in promoting and expanding the field of isotope hydrology. Starting in 1963, the IAEA's quadrennial symposia on isotope hydrology have played a central role in developing this scientific discipline. This publication contains 174 extended abstracts of papers presented during 11 technical sessions of the 11th symposium in the series that was convened during 19-23 May 2003 in Vienna. Nearly 275 participants from 69 countries participated in the symposium to discuss the past, present and future of isotope applications in hydrology and climate research.

Nutrient and Water Management Practices for Increasing Crop Production in Rainfed Arid/Semi-arid Areas: Proceedings of a Coordinated Research Project
The efficient use of scarce water resources is vital for ensuring adequate and stable agricultural production in many developing countries located in arid and semi-arid regions. The results from 10 Member States have shown that crop yields can increase and yield variation be reduced in rainfed agriculture with proper management of cropping systems, stored rainfall water and judicious use of inputs such as supplemental water use, chemical fertilizers and organic residues. This publication shows how improved fertilizer management practices, when suited to local conditions, can reduce by up to 50% the current recommended fertilizer nitrogen rates without significant loss of crop yields. The amount and distribution of rainfall during the growing season had a strong impact on crop yields and on the utilization of applied nitrogen, while the application of nitrogen fertilizer enhanced the water use efficiency of crops through improved ground cover and reduced evapo-transpiration. The inclusion of grain legumes as intercrops or rotation crops in millet based cropping systems also helped to significantly increase the efficiency of nitrogen use by millet.

Status of Industrial Scale Radiation Treatment of Wastewater and Its Future: Proceedings of a consultants meeting held in Daejon, 13-16 October 2003
Fundamental studies of the radiation process for wastewater treatment, its analogues and differences to other advanced oxidation technologies and of combined processes are presented in the report. Possible fields of application, technical solutions and economic factors concerning engineering and other applications are addressed. Developments concerning accelerator design, engineering and construction as well as other features of radiation sources are reviewed. Further discussions include the design of under-beam systems. Such progress and developments are critical for further applications. A reduction in cost and an improvement of technical reliability are expected; in particular high power accelerators are needed for environmental applications. The book points out that such applications should be carefully revised in accordance with the existing regulations and state of the art knowledge. The results of the discussions summarized in the publication may serve as the basis for the preparation of guidelines and feasibility studies for full-scale process implementation. Public awareness and technology acceptance are additional factors to be considered for further dissemination; therefore this publication is a valuable source providing necessary information for engineers, environmentalists and decision makers.
