The NEA Workshop and Euroconference on this subject was held in order to introduce the applications of synchrotron-based analytical techniques to scientists working in the environmental field or working with radionuclides. It was also aimed at providing a forum for teaching and for scientific discussion, as well as for establishing a possible co-operative scientific network.
These proceedings contain the abstracts and a selection of the papers presented at the meeting. They include introductions to synchrotron radiation techniques, results in the field of actinide chemistry and physics obtained at synchrotron light sources. Status reports on current and planned experimental activities at these installations are also provided.
