- A review of the Soviet literature on radioecology and decontamination of soils indicates that most of their environmental decontamination philosophy has been directed toward remedial measures for contamination resulting from catastrophic events (i.e., from nuclear weapons or major accidents) that could contaminate hundreds of square kilometers or more of land and water surfaces. As a consequence, very practical approaches have been suggested to deal with these problems. Approaches which employ equipment which is generally available for soil decontamination and techniques which are most cost effective seem to be preferred. Techniques used for both terrestrial and aquatic decontamination are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the reclamation of areas contaminated with /sup 90/Sr.
