This chapter describes methods for assessing the movement of radionuclides along pathways of transport and bioaccumulation in rivers, reservoirs, lakes, estuaries, and coastal oceans. The materials presented here focus primarily on the accumulation of radionuclides by aquatic organisms. The key pathways for transport and bioaccumulation are demonstrated using a model for 137Cs in the Chernobyl (former Soviet Union) cooling pond. Subsequent consumption of contaminated aquatic resources by humans is briefly described in relation to human health risk assessment.

Keywords:   radionuclide transport, aquatic pathways, bioaccumulation in rivers, bioaccumulation in lakes, aquatic organisms
