AB  - Developing efficient methods for Mn separation is the most challenging in exploring innovative and sustainable acid mine drainage (AMD) treatments. The availability and capacity of certain waste materials for Mn removal warrant further exploration of their performance regarding the effect of process factors. This study addressed the influence of AMD chemistry (initial pH and concentrations of Mn, sulfate, and Fe), the solid/solution ratio, and the contact time on Mn separation by wood ash (WA) and bone char (BC). At an equivalent dose, WA displayed higher neutralization and Mn removal capacity over the initial pH range of 2.5–6.0 due to lime, dicalcium silicate, and fairchildite dissolution. On the other hand, at optimal doses, Mn separation by BC was faster, it was less affected by coexisting sulfate and Fe(II) species, and the carbonated hydroxyapatite structure of BC remained preserved. Efficient removal of Mn was feasible only at final pH values ≥ 9.0 in all systems with WA and at pH 6.0–6.4 using BC. These conclusions were confirmed by treating actual AMD with variable doses of both materials. The water-leaching potential of toxic elements from the AMD/BC treatment residue complied with the limits for inert waste. In contrast, the residue of AMD/WA treatment leached non-toxic quantities of Cr and substantial amounts of Al due to high residual alkalinity. To minimize the amount of secondary waste generated by BC application, its use emerges particularly beneficial after AMD neutralization in the finishing step intended for Mn removal.

AB  - The radioactive barium isotope Ba-133 (t1/2 = 10.55 y), generated in nuclear reactors, nuclear weapons testing, other nuclear activities, and accidents, reaches the environment through atmospheric emission, contaminated water and leaching from waste. Considering that the efficiency of pollutant separation from aqueous media using zeolites depends on many process factors, tests are necessary to ensure their optimal use in specific conditions. This work studied the removal of Ba ions by natural clinoptilolite and synthetic zeolite 4A from one-component solutions and two-component mixtures of Ba and Sr ions, under equilibrium conditions. The results showed that Ba ions bind preferentially compared to Sr regardless of zeolite type. However, the capacity and efficiency of Ba sorption and sorption of both cations under competing conditions are significantly higher with the use of Z4A. The total ion sorption capacity increases in two-component systems, indicating the participation of additional active zeolite centers in the presence of Sr ions.

In this study, the diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA)-extractable forms of PTEs were investigated in soils surrounding the largest Serbian steel production plant. The correlation and geostatistical analysis indicated their pronounced variability suggesting the anthropogenic origin of most investigated elements, apparently from the steel production facility. The detailed visualization of variables and observations derived by self-organizing maps (SOMs) revealed the homologies in PTEs’ distribution patterns, implying the common origin of some elements. These observations were confirmed by principal component analysis (PCA) and positive matrix factorization (PMF). The аpplied approach supports a comprehensive assessment of contaminated sites' ecological and health risks and provides a basis for soil remediation.

AB  - Gully erosion leads to the formation of deep and wide channels that increase the risk of soil loss, flooding, and
water pollution. In addition, this process reduces the productivity and viability of agricultural land and natural
ecosystems. Preventing gully erosion is critical for maintaining ecological balance and preserving natural resources in certain areas. This paper presents a methodology integrating remote sensing and nuclear techniques to
study gully erosion. The morphometric characterization of gullies using 360-degree camera photogrammetry was
introduced as a new method in erosion research. This approach aims to investigate the suitability of unmanned
aerial vehicle and terrestrial photogrammetry for modeling gullies, to study the variability of erosion processes in
gullies at a small scale, and to compare the differences in erosion intensity between nearby gullies. The study’s
objectives include identifying the effective and economical method for gullies monitoring and providing a
starting point for controlling and safeguarding gullies. Mainly erosion process was detected in the studied gullies,
while deposition was identified at only 2 out of 39 sampling locations. The results showed an average soil
redistribution rate of 16.2 t ha− 1 yr− 1 and coefficients of variation of 32%, 59%, and 91% for three investigated
gullies. It was determined that aerial photogrammetry methods were not practical under the conditions prevailing in the study area. Highly detailed 3D models of the gullies were created using 360-degree photogrammetry. It was confirmed that the micro-relief obtained by photogrammetric modeling is an essential contribution
to erosion research. The 360-degree camera photogrammetry serves as a reliable tool for analyzing the
morphology of gullies and, in perspective, tracking changes in gully systems over time or monitoring the
effectiveness of the applied protection measures.

AB  - The gully erosion is one of the most significant land degradation processes. Although gully erosion significantly threatens agricultural productivity and natural ecosystems, European land management strategies frequently need more reliable data on environmental conditions governing this process. This study presents a methodology that integrates remote sensing and nuclear techniques for examining gully erosion (Đokić et al., 2023). It introduces a novel approach to erosion research by employing 360-degree camera photogrammetry to characterize gullies morphometrically. The main objectives of this approach are to evaluate the applicability of unmanned aerial vehicles and terrestrial photogrammetry for modeling gullies, to study small-scale erosion processes within gullies, compare erosion intensity between adjacent gullies, and determine the most effective and cost-efficient method for monitoring gullies. A total of 39 soil samples were taken in three studied gullies. The results revealed an average soil redistribution rate of 16.2 t ha−1 yr−1 and coefficients of variation of 32%, 59%, and 91% for the gullies. The estimated erosion rate varies from a minimum of 0.1 t ha−1 yr−1 to a maximum of 34.3 t ha−1 yr−1. Soil deposition was identified at only two sampling sites, 1.1 and 2 t ha−1 yr−1. Highly detailed 3D models of the gullies were created using 360-degree photogrammetry. The micro-relief obtained through modeling proved to be an essential aspect of advanced erosion research.

AB  - Seashells piled in coastal areas worldwide, particularly near commercial mollusk farms, may pose a substantial environmental and health risk. Utilizing seashell waste (SW) as a natural liming material represents a meaningful contribution to the sustainable development of the aquaculture industry through resource recovery. This study assessed the effects of adding various doses of finely ground SW to acidic agricultural soil with elevated total concentration of Cu (219.2 mg/kg) on the bioavailability of selected metals (Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, Co, Pb, Ni, and Cd). The concentration of DTPA-extracted forms of Cu and other elements decreased significantly with the increase in SW dose from 0.15% to 2%, whereas differences between 2% and 5% treatments were not significant. The association of metals' bioavailability with the agrochemical properties of control and treated soil samples revealed the leading influence of soil pH. Furthermore, the DTPA-extracted amounts of Cu and Zn were negatively correlated with carbonate and organic carbon content, and bioavailable Zn forms were negatively correlated with the content of accessible phosphorus. As a cost-effective, sustainable, and renewable source of calcium carbonate, organic carbon, and available phosphorus, SW is a candidate material for acidic soil amelioration, including the immobilization of a range of toxic and potentially toxic metals. However, the study's results underline that SW dose optimization through preliminary tests is a necessary research component that requires observing soil fertility parameters, particularly the status of essential metals.

AB  - The development of nuclear technologies has directed environmental radioactivity research toward continuously improving existing and developing new models for different interpolation, optimization, and classification tasks. Due to their adaptability to new data without knowing the actual modeling function, artificial neural networks (ANNs) are extensively used to resolve the tasks for which the application of traditional statistical methods has not provided an adequate response. This study presents an overview of ANN-based modeling in environmental radioactivity studies, including identifying and quantifying radionuclides, predicting their migration in the environment, mapping their distribution, optimizing measurement methodologies, monitoring processes in nuclear plants, and real-time data analysis. Special attention is paid to highlighting the scope of the different case studies and discussing the techniques used in model development over time. The performances of ANNs are evaluated from the perspective of prediction accuracy, emphasizing the advantages and limitations encountered in their use. The most critical elements in model optimization were identified as network structure, selection of input parameters, the properties of input data set, and applied learning algorithm. The analysis of strategies and methods for improving the performance of ANNs has shown that developing integrated and hybrid artificial intelligent tools could provide a new path in environmental radioactivity modeling toward more reliable outcomes and higher accuracy predictions. The review highlights the potential of neural networks and challenges in their application in environmental radioactivity studies and proposes directions for future research.

AB  - Hilly terrains characterized by the looseness of the surface soil layer and the slope of the topographic surface are subjected to diverse erosion processes, which could greatly impact forest management. An erosive process was identified along the unstable slopes in most of the Crveni potok catchment in the southeastern part of Serbia. The results of this study indicate two erosion types of variable intensity, dominated by weak and moderate erosion, while severe erosion is identified at several locations. Water pressure in the pores of loose soil in the Crveni potok catchment generates gully erosion in parts of the catchment that are geologically predisposed by the composition of the parent substrate. The paper discusses the factors influencing gully erosion, such as soil density, the slope of the topographic surface, rainfall (precipitation amount, annual distribution), and vegetation characteristics. The set of used methodologies, including remote sensing, nuclear, and geospatial ones, provided an integrated assessment of factors affecting erosion in unstable forest areas. The soil erosion rates in the study area are estimated from inventories of fallout radionuclide 137 Cs using conversion models. Airborne photogrammetry, terrestrial Structure-from-Motion 360-degree camera photogrammetry, and Terrestrial LiDAR Scanning (TLS) are used to model complex geomorphological features of forest terrain. These techniques are found to be convenient for the quantification of the existing state of erosion (length, width, volume, and density of the gully systems) in the forest gullies. The remote sensing techniques provided an insight into the physiographic characteristics of the studied area important for determining its parts affected by erosion. The models obtained using different techniques are compared, techniques are evaluated, and their advantages and disadvantages are pointed out. This approach enables the identification of priority targets for soil conservation and site-specific remediation measures to foster sustainable forest management.

AB  - Surface sediment from the Boka Kotorska Bay (Adriatic Sea) was analyzed for the content of technogenic cesium (137Cs) and naturally occurring (40K, 226Ra, 232Th, 238U) radionuclides. The activity concentrations of the radionuclides have been correlated with the major elements (Si, Al, Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Ti, P, Mn) content of sediment samples. The spatial interpolation identified primordial radioactivity more pronounced in the inland of the bay. Correlation and hierarchical cluster analyses clearly distinguished 226Ra, 232Th, and 238U from 137Cs. In addition, a strong association between primordial radionuclides and most major elements was found. Positive matrix factorization apportioned technogenic and natural radionuclides sources, while Si and Ca were separated from other elements. Radiological hazard parameters (Raeq, D, AEDE, Hin, Hex, AGDE, AUI) that include the doses and indices, and the excess lifetime cancer risk indicate that the risk in the studied area due to gamma radiation is within the acceptable level.

The activity concentrations of the radionuclides have been correlated with the major elements (Si, Al, Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Ti, P, Mn) content of sediment samples. The spatial interpolation identified primordial radioactivity more pronounced in the inland of the bay. Correlation and hierarchical cluster analyses clearly distinguished 226Ra, 232Th, and 238U from 137Cs. In addition, a strong association between primordial radionuclides and most major elements was found. Positive matrix factorization apportioned technogenic and natural radionuclides sources, while Si and Ca were separated from other elements. Radiological hazard parameters (Raeq, D, AEDE, Hin, Hex, AGDE, AUI) that include the doses and indices, and the excess lifetime cancer risk indicate that the risk in the studied area due to gamma radiation is within the acceptable level.",

AB  - As an inert radioactive gas, 222Rn could be easily transported to the atmosphere via emanation, migration, or exhalation. Research measurements pointed out that 222Rn activity concentration changes during the winter and summer months, as well as during wet and dry season periods. Changes in radon concentration can affect the atmospheric electric field. At the boundary layer near the ground, short-lived daughters of 222Rn can be used as natural tracers in the atmosphere. In this work, factors controlling 222Rn pathways in the environment and its levels in soil gas and outdoor air are summarized. 222Rn has a short half-life of 3.82 days, but the dose rate due to radon and its radioactive progeny could be significant to the living beings. Epidemiological studies on humans pointed out that up to 14% of lung cancers are induced by exposure to low and moderate concentrations of radon. Animals that breed in ground holes have been exposed to the higher doses due to radiation present in soil air. During the years, different dose-effect models are developed for risk assessment on human and non-human biota. In this work are reviewed research results of 222Rn exposure of human and non-human biota. © 2020, ISB.

AB  - The atmosphere is host to a complex electric environment, ranging from a global electric circuit generating fluctuating atmospheric electric fields to local lightning strikes and ions. While research on interactions of organisms with their electrical environment is deeply rooted in the aquatic environment, it has hitherto been confined to interactions with local electrical phenomena and organismal perception of electric fields. However, there is emerging evidence of coupling between large- and small-scale atmospheric electrical phenomena and various biological processes in terrestrial environments that even appear to be tied to continental waters. Here, we synthesize our current understanding of this connectivity, discussing how atmospheric electricity can affect various levels of biological organization across multiple ecosystems. We identify opportunities for research, highlighting its complexity and interdisciplinary nature and draw attention to both conceptual and technical challenges lying ahead of our future understanding of the relationship between atmospheric electricity and the organization and functioning of biological systems.

AB  - Radioactive materials released during the two most serious nuclear accidents in history, at Chernobyl and Fukushima, caused exceptionally significant contamination and perturbations of the environment. Among them, this paper focuses on the effects related to the atmospheric electricity (AE). Measurements of the most significant disturbances in the values of various AE parameters recorded near ground level are reviewed and the corresponding results are jointly evaluated. The Chernobyl and Fukushima events caused changes in the AE parameters both after long-distance transport (Chernobyl) and short-distance transport including re-suspension (Fukushima). The data indicates that the electrical conductivity of the air is more sensitive to the presence of airborne radioactivity than the atmospheric electric potential gradient (PG). PG, on the other hand, can be monitored more easily and its variation also reflects the vertical redistribution of radionuclides in the air due to their transport, deposition, and re-suspension from the ground. A brief overview of studies on atmospheric transport and deposition of radioactive clouds is given to facilitate the importance of considering the AE measurements in these subjects, and to incorporate those studies in interpreting the results of AE measurements. The AE measurements are particularly important in studying microphysical effects of enhanced radioactivity in the air where no other distance monitoring method exists, both for fair weather conditions wet conditions.

AB  - This study was conducted to compare soil particle density (ρs), soil total porosity (TP), liquid limit (LL), plastic limit (PL), and plasticity index, and their relations with soil organic matter (SOM), of non-carbonate silty clay Fluvisols under different land uses. Three neighboring land uses were studied: native deciduous forest, arable land, and meadow, managed in the same way for more than 100 years. Soil was collected from 27 soil profiles and from three depths (0–15, 15–30 and 30–45 cm). Land use caused statistically significant but different impacts on soil properties, particularly in the topsoil. The forest topsoil measured the lowest ρs and bulk density (ρb) but the highest SOM and soil water content at PL, compared to meadow and arable soil. Statistically significant linear relationship was observed with the SOM content and ρs (− 0.851**), ρb (− 0.567**), calculated TP (0.567**) and measured TP (− 0.280**). There was a nonlinear relationship between SOM and LL (0.704**) and PL (0.845**) at the topsoil. The findings suggested that SOM content strongly affected ρs, ρb, TP, LL and LP. This regional study showed that the conversion of forestland into agricultural land without appropriate measures to conserve SOM leads to the degradation of physical and rheological soil properties.

Statistically significant linear relationship was observed with the SOM content and ρs (− 0.851**), ρb (− 0.567**), calculated TP (0.567**) and measured TP (− 0.280**). There was a nonlinear relationship between SOM and LL (0.704**) and PL (0.845**) at the topsoil. The findings suggested that SOM content strongly affected ρs, ρb, TP, LL and LP. This regional study showed that the conversion of forestland into agricultural land without appropriate measures to conserve SOM leads to the degradation of physical and rheological soil properties.",

AB  - The chapter aims to summarize different remediation approaches of radionuclide pollutants in water and soil media carried out after decommissioning of nuclear installations worldwide. The attention was focused on different methods of remediation, e.g. natural attenuation, bioremediation, excavating and removing contaminated soil and in situ treatments. The results of radiological assessments of the influence of nuclear cycle facilities in the environment using different modelling approach of the radionuclides transport through the environmental medium are adopted as a useful tool in decision making process applied in remediation of contaminated areas. The current trend in development strategy to support the environmental decision systems for optimization of remediation actions is to use databases on environmental and managerial parameters and radioecological models for the prediction of the effectiveness of remediation measures.

AB  - A valuable tool for external quality control that provides opportunity to improve analytical skills and techniques in the field of radioactivity measurements is participation in proficiency tests (PTs). In this work obtained results from the gamma spectrometry intercomparison for 15 laboratories conducted in May 1986 immediately after the Chernobyl accident for the lucerne sample contaminated with fission products: 140 Ba, 141 Ce, 144 Ce, 134 Cs, 137 Cs, 131 I, 103 Ru, 106 Ru, 95 Zr, are evaluated following the recommendations of the international standard ISO 13528:2005. Environmental radioactivity proficiency tests organized by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are designed to identify analytical problems, to help members states to maintain their accreditation and to provide knowledge and technology transfer in this area. The Analytical Laboratories for the Measurement of Environmental Radioactivity (ALMERA) is a world-wide network of analytical laboratories capable to analyzed radioactivity contents, coordinated by IAEA. Institute for the Application of Nuclear Energy (INEP), University of Belgrade, is an official member since 2013. Annual PTs are organized by ALMERA for the network laboratories using sets of different samples. Based on the PT proposition each result should pass accuracy and precision test to be awarded the status ‘Accepted’, otherwise it lies on the status ‘Warning’ or ‘Not Accepted’. INEP was participated in three worldwide open (in 2006, 2007 and 2011) and six (in a period 2012–2016) PTs organized by IAEA and ALMERA. Radionuclide activity concentrations in different environmental matrices were measured using gamma-ray spectrometer with high purity germanium (HPGe) detector. In IAEA worldwide open PTs among 61 results, 74 % were ‘Accepted’ and 26 % were ‘Not Accepted’. In ALMERA network PTs among 70 results, 84.3 % were ‘Accepted’, 4.3 % were ‘Warning’, 11.4 % were ‘Not Accepted’. PT exercises are the best way to identify gaps and problems areas where further development is needed.

AB  - Ecological and health hazards were assessed based on the concentrations of selected heavy metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn) in thirty surface soil samples taken from the sites around the largest Serbian thermal power plant. Ecological risk caused by heavy metals was estimated through pollution indices whose values indicated low to moderate ecological risks. Health hazard associated with residents’ exposure to heavy metals in soil was calculated applying the U.S. EPA model. The ingestion of soil was the most important exposure pathway.

AB  - The main focus of this study was to assess radiation exposure to human and non-human biota due to natural radionuclides in soil of the Serbian capital. For the first time, ERICA tool was employed for calculation of gamma dose rates to non-human biota in this area. In analyzed soils, the mean values of Ra-226, Th-232 and K-40 specific activities were found to be 35, 43 and 490 Bq kg(-1), respectively. The distribution of analyzed natural radionuclides in soils was discussed in respect to its statistically significant correlations with sand, silt, clay, carbonates, cation exchange capacity and pH value. The annual outdoor effective dose rates to the population varied from 48 to 98 mu Sv, and the total dose rates to terrestrial biota, calculated by ERICA tool, varied from 9.84 x 10(-2) mu Gy h(-1) (for tree) to 5.54 x 10(+0) mu Gy h(-1) (for lichen and bryophytes). The results obtained could serve as a baseline data for the assessment of possible anthropogenic enhancement of the total dose rate to human and non-human biota of the study area.

AB  - PP) represent one of major sources of environmental pollution [1]. Coal combustion leads to accumulation of heavy metals (HMs) in combustion by-products whose disposal and atmospheric emission are main pathways for dispersion of HMs in the soil surrounding TEPPs. HMs from soil may reach human body via variety of pathways, therefore the resident population near TEPPs should be considered to be continuously exposed to soil and coal combustion residuals contaminated by HMs. The TEPP “Nikola Tesla A” is the largest TEPP in Serbian electric power industry. It is located near Obrenovac, (35 km from Belgrade), in the area identified as the Serbian region most threatened by pollution from coal mining and coal combustion.The aim of the present study was to assess carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic health hazard for residents associated with HMs in soil. The potential human health riskwas estimated for exposures to minimal, mean and maximal total measured concentration of selected HMs – Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn. In case of Cr, 6:1 ratio of Cr(III):Cr(VI) was applied as recommended by US EPA. Surface soil samples (10 cm depth) were collected at 30 locations distributed 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 km to the west, southwest, south, southeast, and east directionfrom the TEPP “Nikola Tesla A”. Total concentrations of HMs were measured by atomic absorption spectrometer. The US EPA risk assessment model [2] was exploited for risk calculation taking into account ingestion of soil, inhalation of resuspended soilparticles and dermal exposure to HMs in soil. The cancer risk was evaluated through the excess lifetime cancer risk – ELCR, and non-carcinogenic risk was expressed as the hazard quotient – HQ. According to US EPA, the cancer risk below 106 is considered to be negligibly small, and risk of 104  to be sufficiently large that remediation is desirable. Cancer risk between 106  and 104  are generally considered acceptable [3].The value of HQ should be less than unity to consider risk from systemic toxicity negligible. The total cancer risk, ELCRtotal, is calculated as a sum of all ELCR for all HMs and all exposure routes considered. The overall non-carcinogenic risk is expressed as hazard index, HI, equal to the sum of all HQ for all HMs and all accounted exposure routes[2]. Risk assessment from non-carcinogenic effects showed that risk from ingestion of soil particles by children and adults comprises almost whole HI. Dermal risk existed only for exposition to Cd in soil, and it was negligible for both categories (4 × 109  to 3 × 103 ). Risk arose from inhalation exposure was not respective because calculated HIwas so benevolent with maximal value of 1 × 108 for both children and adults. Although none of HQ for any single HM was above the reference value of one, aggregate HI for children fell in the range from 1.04 to 2.60 with a mean value of 1.79. Cobalt (0.47 < HI <1.00), Fe (0.42 < HI <0.94) and Mn (0.11 < HI <0.44) were identified as contaminants of most concern. Among HMs measured, only Cd, Co, Cr(VI), Ni and Pb are recognized as human cancerogens [2]. The ELCRtotalfell in the range from 1 × 105 to 5 × 105 . Ingestion of soil contributed the largest to the ELCRtotal, followed by insignificant contribution from inhalation. There was no risk induced by dermal exposure. According to Institute of Public Health of Serbia, the standardized cancer incidence for in 2014 for the City of Belgrade (where the municipality of Obrenovac belongs) was 2.60 × 103  for males and 2.15 × 103 for females [4]. These values are very high in comparison to the risk assessed in this study; therefore, the risk provoked by exposure to HMs in soil made portion of the real cancer risk that was completely insignificant. The estimated carcinogenic risk in this research was in the acceptable range. Estimated non-carcinogenic risk suggests that adults are not endangered due to HMs in soil, while children population is under elevated risk from deleterious health effects. Ingestion of soil was identified as a primary pathway of HMs harming to human health.

AB  - The concentrations and spatial distribution of nine potentially harmful elements (PHEs), namely Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn, and their relation to soil properties were investigated in thirty soil profiles (0-50 cm depth) sampled around the largest Serbian coal-fired power plant (CFPP) Nikola Tesla A. Soil properties were determined following standard procedures, and total contents of PHEs were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometer. Concentrations of Cd, Co, Fe, Mn, Pb and Zn were the highest in soil profiles sampled 1 km away from the CFPP, concentrations of Ni and Cu gradually increased up to 4 km, and the highest Cr concentrations were measured in samples taken 6 km away from the CFPP. The highest concentration of PHEs analyzed, except Mn, corresponded with predominant wind directions. Depth did not show significant impact on distribution of any PHEs investigated. Among soil properties, the total organic carbon showed the closest relationship with the PHEs. Data were processed by a principal component analysis which enabled distinguishing anthropogenic from natural influences on soil properties and PHE contents. Although the impact of CFPP operations is obvious, assets of principal component analysis did not allow clear distinction of CFPPs contribution from parent material in enrichment of PHE contents in the soil in the study area.

AB  - This paper presents the environmental radiation risk assessment based on two software program approaches ERICA Tool (version 1.2) and RESRAD BIOTA (version 1.5) to estimate dose rates to terrestrial biota in the area around the largest coal fired power plant in Serbia. For dose rate assessment software's default reference animals and plants and the best estimated values of activity concentrations of U-238, U-234, Th-234, Th-232, Th-230, Ra-226, (210)pb, (210)po, Cs-137 in soil were used. Both approaches revealed the highest contribution to the internal dose rate due to Ra-226 and Po-210, while (CS)-C-137 contributed the most to the external dose rate. In the investigated area total dose rate to biota derived using ERICA Tool ranged from 03 to 14.4 mu Gy h(-1). The natural radionuclides exhibited significantly higher contribution to the total dose rate than the artificial one. In the investigated area, only dose rate for lichens and bryophytes exceeded ERICA Tool screening value of total dose rate of 10 mu Gy h(-1), suggested as confident that environmental risks are negligible. The assessed total dose rates for reference animals and plants using RESRAD BIOTA were found to be 7 and 3 mu Gy h(-1), respectively. In RESRAD BIOTA - Level 3, 10 species (Lumbricus terrestris, Rana lessonae, Sdurus vulgaris, Anas platyrhynchos, Lepus europaeus, Vulpes vulpes, Capreolus capreolus, Suss crofa, Quercu srobur, Tilia spp.) representative for the study area were modeled. Among them the highest total dose rate (4.5 mu Gy h(-1)) was obtained for large mammals. Differences in the predicted dose rates to biota using the two software programs are the consequence of the difference in the values of transfer parameters used to calculate activity concentrations in biota. Doses of ionizing radiation estimated in this study will not exhibit deterministic effects at the population level. Thus, the obtained results indicate no significant radiation impact of coal fired power plant operation on terrestrial biota. This paper confirms the use ERICA Tool and RESRAD BIOTA softwares as flexible and effective means of radiation impact assessment. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

In the investigated area total dose rate to biota derived using ERICA Tool ranged from 03 to 14.4 mu Gy h(-1). The natural radionuclides exhibited significantly higher contribution to the total dose rate than the artificial one. In the investigated area, only dose rate for lichens and bryophytes exceeded ERICA Tool screening value of total dose rate of 10 mu Gy h(-1), suggested as confident that environmental risks are negligible. The assessed total dose rates for reference animals and plants using RESRAD BIOTA were found to be 7 and 3 mu Gy h(-1), respectively. In RESRAD BIOTA - Level 3, 10 species (Lumbricus terrestris, Rana lessonae, Sdurus vulgaris, Anas platyrhynchos, Lepus europaeus, Vulpes vulpes, Capreolus capreolus, Suss crofa, Quercu srobur, Tilia spp.) representative for the study area were modeled. Among them the highest total dose rate (4.5 mu Gy h(-1)) was obtained for large mammals. Differences in the predicted dose rates to biota using the two software programs are the consequence of the difference in the values of transfer parameters used to calculate activity concentrations in biota. Doses of ionizing radiation estimated in this study will not exhibit deterministic effects at the population level. Thus, the obtained results indicate no significant radiation impact of coal fired power plant operation on terrestrial biota. This paper confirms the use ERICA Tool and RESRAD BIOTA softwares as flexible and effective means of radiation impact assessment. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.",
