Polar Seas Oceanography describes a new tool called the Generic Model System for simulations and assessment of potential radioactive spreading in the Arctic regions, through rivers, estuaries, regional seas and the Arctic and Atlantic basin. It considers the present and future potential for spreading of radionuclear pollution from sources, such as from the major Russian processing plants through Siberian rivers as well as from European sources such as the UK Sellafield plant. The book provides support for decision making involving risk prevention, forecasting and readiness for probable crises, alerting and detection, relief and mitigation and damage assessment. It will be useful to managers, scientists and PhD students in the area of environmental nuclear safety. The book combines the expertise of professionals from the radionuclear and climate-change sciences.

The Sixth Edition continues the tradition of this great book by applying anatomic knowledge to state-of-the-art imaging. Chapters have been reorganized to help the reader better interpret imaging studies by clearly demonstrating what to expect and where to look for disease spread from each individual organ. Up-to-date chapters explore the dynamic concept, explain its embryologic and anatomic basis, and classify the mechanisms of disease progression. The latest imaging modalities, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, and PET, are incorporated throughout.
